Expert medical care for adults of all ages
Freeman internal medicine physicians specialize in the prevention and treatment of adult diseases. Often referred to as internists, these doctors treat all types of conditions, from common symptoms, such as a minor sniffle, to the most complex or rare, such as symptoms associated with a chronic disease. Because their education equips them to solve puzzling diagnostic problems, internal medicine physicians can handle severe situations in which several different illnesses strike at the same time.
Services provided by internal medicine physicians:
- Treatment of common illness as well as chronic diseases and minor injuries
- Histories and physicals
- Ordering and interpreting of diagnostic studies, lab tests, X-rays, and rehabilitation services
- Prescription of medication and treatments extending to nonpharmacological therapies
Internal Medicine physicians often coordinate patient care with other physicians including hospitalists. Some of our internal medicine physicians only see patients in their offices but work with our hospitalists if a patient stays in the hospital, while others see patients both in the office and in the hospital.
