Internal Medicine Q & A

What is internal medicine?

A physician who specializes in internal medicine is known as an internist; internists provide health care for a wide range of conditions, rather than focusing on only one system of the body, one type of illness, or one type of care.

Internists are medical doctors who have completed medical school, an internship, and a residency in internal medicine.

An internist is trained in preventive care and in diagnosing and treating conditions that affect the cardiovascular, digestive, musculoskeletal, respiratory and reproductive systems, as well as mental health conditions.

As an internist with extensive clinical experience, Dr. Beausoleil gathers comprehensive information about your health history, your lifestyle, your current symptoms, and additional factors.

This information allows her to make a more accurate diagnosis, and provide treatment options that will promote overall health and wellness, rather than merely addressing one set of symptoms associated with one particular condition.

What conditions can internal medicine address?

An internist has specialized training that qualifies them to diagnoses, and treatment for almost all acute and chronic diseases in adults.
