Internal Medicine

Overview

Internal medicine is a field of practice which is focused on the care of all adults. Under this specialty, doctors or internists as they are called, look to accurately diagnose, treat, and prevent the occurrence of a varied number of diseases that afflict all adults – right from those illnesses which required short-term care to serious chronic illness. At Fortis, our primary aim is to make certain that you are always administered the most appropriate treatment and management for your condition.

 

While internists can choose to subspecialize on one illness or focus on a particular part of the body, in many cases, internists can also decide on treating the person on the whole instead of just focusing on the internal organs. Our internists have subspecialty interests and are well knowledgeable about diseases affecting particular organs or organ systems. In this regard, they either be termed as generalists or subspecialists – like cardiologists who focus on heart-related issues or rheumatologists who focus on rheumatic illnesses such as arthritis. However, an internist shouldn’t be mistaken for a general or family practitioner as both of them are distinctively different.

 

Fortis takes special care to provide the most caring and compassionate internal medicine services to our patients and their families. At Fortis, internal medicine practice is our specialty. Our team of experienced internists will work with you to assess your symptoms, determine the underlying cause of your condition, and thereon, customize the most effective treatment plan to stimulate your recovery.
