Internal Medicine

Overview

BaliMéd Hospital Internal Medicine Department focuses on comprehensive adult medicine and treating the whole person, not just internal organs, from late teen years through old age.

Internists don’t deliver babies, don’t treat children, and don’t do surgery. Internists however have wide-ranging knowledge of complex diseases that affect adults. Internists are specifically trained not only to diagnose and treat disease, but to prevent the initial onset of these diseases by recognizing and controlling risk factors such as elevated blood pressure and cholesterol. Internists are trained to diagnose and treat chronic illness and specifically situations where several different illnesses may strike at the same time.

No matter what the condition is, our skilled internists have the solution for everything from puzzling diagnostic problems to handling severe chronic illnesses. They also bring to patients a thorough knowledge of wellness (disease prevention and the promotion of health), women’s health, substance abuse, mental health, as well as effective treatment of generic issues of the eyes, ears, skin, nervous system and reproductive organs.

Internal medicine is concerned with the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of adult diseases by non-surgical techniques.
