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. 

Real Patient Testimonials

Pamela Norfleet.png

"I am very satisfied with the “baby steps” of progress I have made so far on the Wellness Program.

I find I have more energy and a brighter outlook on life in general. I am making much-needed changes in my sleep habits, increasing my exercise regimen and I am not even halfway through the program. I have a positive attitude going on to the finish and I am setting goals for more weight loss.

My problem with procrastination is getting better! I’m still adjusting to some of the program changes, but that gets easier every week.

I am really excited about continuing the program!"
