At Simpson Medical, one of the services we offer is internal medicine, providing adults with the quality health care that they need. We know what health issues and goals matter to our patients and we have the team and skill set to provide it.
Internal medicine is dedicated to diagnosing and treating patients with the specific needs of adults, rather than the more general and broad care that family medicine provides. Our doctors have comprehensive and detailed knowledge and experience in treating adults of all ages. We know what health risks and threats to look out for at every stage of your adult life and how best to keep you enjoying life as long as possible. As the population ages, there is a greater need for internal medicine to help keep patients healthy and fit.
Internal medicine is also helpful in treating and helping patients manage complex illnesses and conditions. The specialty of internal medicine covers a wide range of conditions affecting the internal organs of the body – the heart, the lungs, the liver and gastro-intestinal tract, the kidneys and urinary tract, the brain, spinal column, nerves, muscles and joints.
Although some diseases specifically affect individual organs, the majority of common diseases – arteriosclerosis, diabetes, high blood pressure and cancer may affect many internal organs of the body. The internist must then be trained to recognize and manage a broad range of diseases and, with the aging population, many patients with chronic and multiple disorders.
