Internal Medicine Q & A

What is internal medicine?

Internal medicine is an area of health care focused on delivering primary care to adult patients. It’s a mode of practice that recognizes the importance of establishing strong professional relationships between patients and practitioners. 

Internal medicine is also firmly rooted in science. Treatments are designed around the latest medical research and administered by highly trained medical specialists who have extensive experience across many areas of practice. 

Why see a doctor if I’m not ill or injured?

Far too many people only come to see a doctor once they are already injured or ill. That approach fails to take advantage of all that preventive health offers. 

When you choose an internal medicine specialist as your primary care physician, you’ll receive excellent preventive health services. That includes routine annual physicals. Your visits focus on delivering the screenings right for your age, sex, and overall health. 

Preventive health care also ensures you have regular access to a physician you know and trust. That can make a world of difference if you or a loved one becomes injured or ill. No one is at their best when they’re feeling unwell, and knowing where to turn for reliable care makes it easier to navigate an acute medical need.

What kinds of services can be performed within primary care?

In addition to preventive health services, internal medicine specialists like Dr. Taweh also provide comprehensive chronic disease management. He gets to know you and your unique health challenges. Then, he works to craft a customized treatment plan to help you make the most out of every day.
