What is an Internist?

An internal medicine physician, or internist, is a doctor that specializes in the internal organs, including the heart, kidney, liver and lungs. These doctors help manage diseases of these and other organs, and are acutely aware of how these organs interact.

For example, internists work with patients who have diabetes. If not managed appropriately, diabetes can affect some of the other organs.

There’s a lot of overlap between diabetes and other conditions, such as hypertension and elevated cholesterol. Some patients tend to have complicated health issues with disorders of several organs. 

An internist’s role is often one of a gatekeeper, where she keeps a close eye on a patient’s body systems and helps manage chronic illnesses.
