Are you looking for an Internal Medicine doctor?
Internists are physicians who specialize in the internal organs including the heart, kidney, liver and lungs. These doctors treat a wide variety of diseases and deal with both acute and chronic illness. Some internists only see hospital patients while many others see patients in different types of medical facilities. Internal medicine doctors tend to focus on preventative medicine and keeping their patients as healthy as possible. Some internal medicine doctors choose to further specialize into subspecialties such as cardiology and gastroenterology.
