Internal medicine specialists can be a patient’s best resource and advocate. Often times patients prefer to seek the consultation of an internal medicine specialists over that of a primary care physician because the specialists offers a more in-depth perspective on whatever issue may be troubling that patient.
Internal medicine specialists have additional training in the diagnosis, management and nonsurgical treatment of unusual or serious diseases. This means that they can provide advice and expertise for patients that have difficult-to-diagnose conditions as well as healthy patients that may have unresolved issues such as chronic headaches.
When diseases or conditions are diagnosed that require evaluation by a subspecialist, internal medicine specialists refer patients to the appropriate physician.
