Riverwood Healthcare Center’s Internal Medicine department focuses on preventing, diagnosing, and treating common adult health conditions. Internal medicine physicians, also called internists or doctors of internal medicine, are specially trained to solve puzzling diagnostic problems and care for patients with severe chronic illnesses and those with complex medical histories.
Internal medicine physicians also specialize in wellness (disease prevention and the promotion of health), women’s health, substance abuse, mental health, as well as effective treatment of common problems of the eyes, ears, skin, nervous system, and reproductive organs.
When other medical specialists are involved, our internal medicine physicians coordinate patient care and they may also consult with family medicine physicians on complex medical problems.
For adult primary care, especially if you have multiple health problems or complex illnesses, consider choosing one of Riverwood’s internal medicine physicians.
