Internal Medicine

Internal medicine is the branch of medicine dealing with the diagnosis and non-surgical treatment of diseases, especially of internal organ systems. Doctors of internal medicine focus on adult medicine and have had special study and training focusing on the prevention and treatment of adult diseases. Internists are sometimes referred to as the "doctor's doctor," because they are often called upon to act as consultants to other physicians to help solve puzzling diagnostic problems.
