Internal Medicine Q & A
What is internal medicine?
Internal medicine is a specialty area that focuses on health care for adults. Like pediatricians treat children and gerontologists treat the elderly, internal medicine specialists are experts in the health needs of adults, including primary care, chronic disease management, acute illness and injury treatment, reproductive health, and more. Internists often specialize even further and continue their studies to become experts in:
- Allergies and immunology
- Endocrinology (metabolism and hormones)
- Hematology (blood health)
- Infectious diseases
- Nephrology (kidney health)
- Pulmonology (respiratory health)
- Rheumatology (joints, muscles, bones, and immune system)
- Orthopedics and sports medicine
The team at Cool Springs Internal Medicine & Pediatrics, PLLC, provides a comprehensive range of medical services for adults.
What does an internal medicine specialist treat?
The internists at Cool Springs Internal Medicine & Pediatrics, PLLC, offer preventive health care, acute treatments, and chronic disease management. Preventive medicine, including annual wellness visits, immunizations, and health screenings, form the foundation of health care. It is much easier for you to work with your internist to protect your health and avoid disease than it is to treat a disease.
However, even with the best intentions, sometimes you get sick and need acute medical treatment to help you fight off the illness. Additionally, you might develop a chronic health condition like allergies, asthma, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, diabetes, or heart disease. Your internist has the knowledge, training, and experience needed to help you stay as healthy as possible and coordinate your medical care if you need it.
When should I see an internal medicine specialist?
As an adult, you should see an internist for all of your medical needs. You should see your internist at least once a year for your annual wellness visit to check in on your health and have any recommended health screenings and blood work.
You can also see your internist if you get sick. You can either schedule an appointment at Cool Springs Internal Medicine & Pediatrics, PLLC, or use the walk-in clinic for sick visits. The team tries to make same-day appointments available whenever possible.
The internists at Cool Springs Internal Medicine & Pediatrics, PLLC, also have a variety of subspecialties to address specific health concerns.
