Internal Medicine

services internal medicineOur internal medicine physicians use their scientific knowledge and clinical expertise to diagnose and treat complex illnesses. Although they focus on a specific area, they work with other specialists including surgeons or obstetricians to coordinate care for the whole patient. They’re so often called to serve as consultants that they’ve earned the nickname “the doctor’s doctor.”

Internal medicine physicians at NOH and OMG treat patients in a variety of areas, including:

  • Allergy and immunology
  • Endocrinology
  • Gastroenterology (colon and intestinal health)
  • Hematology
  • Nephrology (kidneys)
  • Oncology
  • Pulmonology (lungs)
  • Rheumatology (arthritis)

They’ll help you keep track of how well all the parts of your body are working together to fight disease and help you live the best life you can. Physicians in internal medicine are like detectives, uncovering what often can’t be seen or felt. For instance, did you know 42 million Americans have high cholesterol? Are you one of them?
