Description

What is an internist? An internist is a doctor who focuses on adult medicine and has completed a special study related to the prevention and treatment of adult diseases.

When to visit

When would you see an internist? Internists spend more time training, than a general practitioner, to specialize in a particular internal organ or system. For example, internists might specialize in the digestive system. In that case, an internist will see patients with problems related to the stomach, liver, intestines, or other digestive organs. And they’d see those same patients for other problems, such as the flu.

What to expect

What would you expect during a visit with an internist? What would be expected from a visit to an internist would vary depending on the condition of the patient.

How often to visit

How often should you visit an internist? Like general practitioners, many internists serve as primary care physicians, the doctors you might see when it’s time for your yearly checkup.
