Internal Medicine Q & A

What is internal medicine?

Internal medicine is a branch of health care that diagnoses, treats, and prevents illnesses or injuries in adults.

The team at Capital Health & Clinics boasts extensive training in this area and knows how to care for both acute and chronic issues. If for some reason, they’re unable to assist, they can refer you to a medical specialist in the area.

What type of training do internal medicine doctors receive?

Internal medicine doctors complete four years of traditional medical school followed by three years of residency training. Residency training focuses on a specific specialty, such as geriatrics (health care for seniors), cardiology (heart health), or sports medicine.

What conditions can internal medicine treat?

At Capital Health & Clinics, the team uses internal medicine to diagnose and treat various conditions, including:

  • Acute illnesses (i.e., the flu or the common cold)
  • Chronic conditions (i.e., diabetes, heart disease, kidney failure)
  • Sprains and strains
  • Fractures
  • Dislocated joints
  • Sports and work-related injuries
  • Bug bites
  • Rashes

Internal medicine can also treat most cuts and lacerations. Your provider can clean and dress your wound or administer stitches or staples if necessary. 

How frequently should I schedule an internal medicine appointment?

The team at Capital Health & Clinics recommends you schedule an internal medicine appointment at least once a year. Routine visits to your internal medicine physician can alert you to potentially serious issues, like diabetes, hypertension, or heart disease, in their early stages when they’re easiest to treat.

Regular visits also present an opportunity to ask questions and gain insights about steps you can take to improve your well-being.

How do I choose an internal medicine doctor?

The easiest way to choose an internal medicine doctor is to schedule an in-person appointment at Capital Health & Clinics. If it helps, write down a list of questions to ask your provider during the visit. 

Some of the questions to ask include:

  • Do you reserve same-day appointments for emergencies?
  • What’s your treatment philosophy?
  • What hospitals are you affiliated with?
  • Can I contact you outside of in-person appointments?

It’s important to select a doctor who provides the level of care you need. The team at Capital Health & Clinics can work with you to develop a regular treatment schedule that aligns with your age, medical history, and needs.
