Internal Medicine

Doctors of internal medicine, also called internists, have special training in the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of diseases that affect adults. They’re often asked to consult with other doctors to help solve puzzling diagnostic problems.

Lifelong adult care

An internist can be your primary care physician (PCP) throughout your adult life, from the late teens through your senior years. Your care team may also include a physician assistant or nurse practitioner. Internal medicine providers help you stay well and get you back on your feet when you’re sick. They also have expertise in managing chronic health conditions, such as:

  • Allergies and asthma
  • Diabetes
  • Heart disease
  • Hypertension

At Cape Cod Healthcare, your internal medicine doctor will build a relationship with you, provide personalized care and oversee your treatment, if your condition requires the involvement of other specialists.
