Do you have internists in Reseda CA?
Do you need a new Internist? Or does an older family member of yours need one? You can come to meet a quality physician of internal medicine here at Rachman Medical Group. This kind of physician is a specialist in treating adults and seniors, and the physician can provide ongoing care for a patient when necessary.
A physician of internal medicine, also called an Internist, is a fully capable physician and doctor that have specialized in treating the common and chronic conditions that typically affect adults and seniors. An Internist is able to provide short-term care, like by prescribing anti-inflammatory drugs, as well as long-term care, like by helping to manage a chronic condition such as heart disease. When an Internist completes an internal medicine residency, they are called an internist.
Internal medicine doctors and internists, like ours here at Rachman Medical Group, can diagnose and treat diseases and other conditions that commonly affect adults and seniors, like:
• Acute respiratory infections
• Cardiovascular disease
• High blood cholesterol
• Bronchitis that’s chronic
And many others
If you have or may have any of the conditions above, then you should see an internal medicine doctor/internist. You could also take an older family member to see one.
So, an Internist is able to treat and help manage the conditions we’ve mentioned above, but also provide preventive care to prevent the conditions from occurring in the first place. For instance, a cancer screening can help prevent cancer. Also, if a person already has a condition that requires ongoing attention, an internal medicine doctor can provide it. Or if a patient needs to see a specialist about their condition, the doctor can provide a referral. If necessary, the doctor can create and be at the center of a network between multiple doctors and specialists in order to provide the most comprehensive kind of patient care.
Yes, absolutely! Family practice physicians, pediatricians, and internal medicine physicians alike can become primary care physicians. An internal medicine physician is especially qualified to become a primary care physician for an adult or senior patient. Also, if you’re an adult or senior and you need a very particular kind of healthcare, like heart healthcare, you may be able to find an internal medicine doctor that specializes in that particular kind of healthcare.
