Summerlin Las Vegas NV
Our concierge medicine specialist, Angela S Miller MD offers medical services to the residents of Summerlin Las Vegas NV. Internal medicine physicians, sometimes known as internists, are experts who use scientific knowledge and clinical skills to diagnose, treat, and compassionately care for adults with illnesses ranging from minor to severe. What is the difference between an internist and a doctor?
What exactly do they do, and who do they help? An internist is a physician who solely treats adults. An internist only handles older adolescents and adults, whereas a family medicine practitioner can treat persons of all ages. An internist, like a family medicine doctor, handles the majority of common medical problems, from sprains and strains to diabetes. Internal medicine physicians focus on the diagnosis, treatment, and prevention of disease in adults. They’ve been trained to treat a wide range of illnesses as well as provide prevention and wellness advice to their patients.

Everything You Need to Know About Internal Medicine Physicians
You’ve probably heard the term “internist,” but you may not know what this sort of doctor works or how he or she differs from a family medicine practitioner.
If you’re not sure, keep reading – especially if you have a chronic disease like diabetes or hypertension that needs to be managed.
What is an Internist?
An internist, or doctor who specializes in internal medicine, is a doctor who specializes in the heart, kidneys, liver, and lungs.
According to internal medicine experts at Memorial Regional Health, these professionals help manage disorders of these and other organs and are acutely aware of how these organs interact.
Internists, for example, work with diabetic patients. Diabetes can have a negative impact on other organs if it is not well treated. Diabetes and other illnesses such as hypertension and high cholesterol have a lot of overlap. Some people have intricate health problems involving multiple organs. An internist’s duty is frequently that of a gatekeeper, keeping a careful check on a patient’s body systems and assisting with the management of chronic conditions.
When illness processes progress, our internists seek the advice of other specialists as needed. When an illness becomes complicated, I work with the relevant specialists to coordinate my patient’s care.
Family Practice vs. Internal Medicine
You may be unsure of the difference between a family practice physician and an internal medicine physician, as many individuals are. While both function as primary care physicians for the majority of people, offering annual exams and comprehensive health management, there is a significant distinction between the two. Simply put, family medicine treats a larger number of patients than internal medicine does. Doctors who practice family medicine look after the entire health and well-being of people of all ages, including children. Female patients can also get gynecological care from them. Internists typically receive more in-depth training in internal organs and processes. Adults are the only ones they see. “As an internal medicine physician, I see a lot of people in their eighties and nineties. When people find they have a chronic ailment, they frequently seek me out,” one of our doctors observed. Chronic diseases tend to manifest themselves as we age, hence many internists’ patients are in the geriatric population. Diabetes, COPD, hypertension, increased cholesterol, heart disease, kidney problems, endocrine problems, blood disorders, and even infectious diseases plague many internists’ patients.
