Why Choose a Duke Internal Medicine Doctor
What Does an Internal Medicine Doctor Do?
Internal medicine doctors, also called internists, work with you to ensure you live a healthy life. In addition to preventive care and health maintenance for both women and men, our internal medicine doctors diagnose and treat medical conditions that impact the lives of adults. They also help you manage chronic conditions, including diabetes, heart disease, mental health concerns, and other long-term health problems.
Special Training in Senior and Elderly Care
Several of our internal medicine doctors have undergone additional training in geriatrics, a subset of primary care that focuses on the later years. Our providers help you stay healthy and active as you age and guide you in coping with the diseases and disabilities that may accompany the aging process.
