The Christie Clinic Department of Internal Medicine is a cornerstone of healthcare, providing comprehensive and specialized medical care for patients 18 years and older, with an emphasis on wellness and preventive care. Internal Medicine providers are extensively trained in the diagnosis, evaluation and treatment of medical conditions that commonly occur from late adolescence through the geriatric years. Our expertise includes the ability to diagnose and treat acute illness and help patients manage chronic medical conditions such as asthma, diabetes and high blood pressure.
One of the key aspects of internal medicine is its focus on preventive care. Our providers emphasize the importance of regular health screenings, vaccinations, and lifestyle modifications to prevent the onset of diseases such as diabetes, hypertension, and heart disease. Through patient education and counseling, they empower individuals to take proactive steps towards maintaining their health and well-being.
In addition to preventive care, the Department of Internal Medicine encompasses the diagnosis and management of acute and chronic illnesses. Our providers are trained to evaluate a wide range of symptoms and medical conditions. They employ a combination of clinical skills, diagnostic tests, and evidence-based treatments to address complex medical issues and optimize patient outcomes.
Internal Medicine also plays a crucial role in the management of chronic diseases such as diabetes, asthma, and arthritis. Our providers work closely with patients to develop personalized treatment plans that may include medication management, lifestyle modifications, and referrals to specialists when necessary. By taking a holistic approach to care, they strive to improve quality of life and minimize the impact of chronic conditions on patients' overall health. Serving as your primary care provider, the Department of Internal Medicine is built on the philosophy of treating the whole patient in order to achieve the best possible outcomes.
The Christie Clinic Department of Internal Medicine also includes a team of nurses available during regular business hours to provide triage needs, medical answers and test results for patents.
