An internist who specializes in the care of adult patients knows there are three reasons why you should have a checkup, even if you are feeling well: To detect unrecognized disease; to establish an ongoing doctor-patient relationship in which you can be advised about a healthy lifestyle; and to provide reassurance‑peace of mind that cannot be measured in dollars.
Preventive medicine is an important part of the internist’s approach to health care. Through periodic reviews of the patient’s health, the internist can focus on early detection of potential problems. Preventive medicine also includes adult immunizations.
Your internist is also dedicated to diagnosing and treating illness, whether you have a common cold or a more serious problem. His goal is to treat the source of patients’ illnesses through medicine or procedures other than surgery. When a specialist in another field of medicine should be consulted, your internist will refer you to a competent physician in the required field.
