General Medicine

Research has proven that ongoing relationship with family doctors results in better health at lower costs (Starfield, Shi, and Macinko 2005). This has been proven internationally, especially in countries with a primary care base.

Internal Medicine physicians or General medicine physicians specialize in Adult medicine and Preventive Health care. They treat acute and chronic illnesses and help in solving puzzling diagnostic problems especially in those with multiple medical conditions. They help in coordination of care among different specialists, thus acting as the crux of a patient’s health and well being.
