Doctors of internal medicine, also referred to as internists, specialize in the prevention and treatment of adult diseases. Like disease detectives, internists are trained to use the many forms of diagnostic exams to diagnose puzzling health problems. They often “subspecialize” in specific medical areas that include:
- Adolescent medicine
- Allergy and immunology
- Infectious disease
These subspecialties allow internists to act as consultants to other physicians. Onslow’s internists have access to not only the most advanced diagnostic technology available, but they also have access to the expertise of the entire team of internal medicine physicians, in each of their subspecialties. Together they work to provide the best diagnosis, treatment and prevention for a wide range of adult diseases and conditions.
