An internist is a doctor specializing in internal medicine, who treats adult patients for a complex spectrum of conditions and chronic illnesses. Internists specialize in diagnosis and non-surgical treatment, and often coordinate the treatment with other specialists. Their role is invaluable in the prevention of medical conditions.
An internist will provide a patient with examination, diagnosis, and treatment, especially of acute illnesses such as infection or influenza. Internists usually develop a long-term relationship with the patient and act as a personal physician who knows the patient’s condition well.
