Internal Medicine FAQ
Internal medicine includes virtually all of the routine medical care you may need over time.
You’ll see your doctor at Prestige Physicians for physical wellness exams around once a year, or as recommended for your specific situation. Your physical exams include screening for illnesses or conditions like high blood pressure and diabetes.
Your internal medicine specialist also screens for health issues specific to your sex, age, and health. For example, your internal medicine doctor at Prestige Physicians can screen for prostate cancer in men and breast cancer in women along with many other conditions and illnesses.
Chronic illness management
Your internal medicine doctor can manage your chronic disease like diabetes or hypertension through lifestyle changes, medication, and close medical monitoring.
Your internal medicine doctor can also help with acute illness. When you come down with a cold, flu, bronchitis, allergic reaction, or any other sudden illness, your internal medicine doctor can help you recover as quickly as possible.

This gives you true continuity of care that’s often lacking with other primary care providers.
