Internal Medicine Q & A

What is internal medicine?

Internal medicine is a medical specialty that encompasses the care of a wide range of conditions affecting the internal bodily organs: the heart, lungs, liver, gastrointestinal tract, urinary tract, kidneys, brain, spinal column, muscles, nerves, and joints. Most chronic diseases and conditions affect multiple organs and systems of the body.

Internal medicine doctors, called internists, typically help manage and treat conditions that affect adults, such as high blood pressure, diabetes, and arthritis. With the aging population, these conditions become more common and severe. As a general health care provider, an internist can diagnose and treat abdominal pain, back pain, chest pain, and other common problems and conditions.

Internal medicine can involve post-hospitalization care and patient education about the best ways to be proactive and reactive with health.

Furthermore, Internal medicine can incorporate mental health, substance abuse, women’s health, men’s health, and the treatment of common problems of the ears, eyes, skin, reproductive organs and nervous systems.

Internal medicine physicians serve patients in an outpatient setting for many years, which enables them to develop strong patient relationships and get to know the ins and outs of their patients’ health needs. Farmbrook Internal Medicine provides a convenient and comfortable office environment for you to receive compassionate care.

What is preventive medicine?

Preventive medicine is a big part of internal medicine care as it’s so important in reducing the risk of much more complicated and debilitating conditions from developing. Dr. Hagen offers a variety of tests and screenings, such as cholesterol and blood pressure tests to help prevent certain complications and lower your disease risks.

Dr. Hagen spends time educating his patients, teaching men and women wellness tips, health promotion, and disease prevention.

What are the benefits of internal medicine?
