Frequently Asked Questions
What is general medicine, and what does a general medicine doctor do?
General medicine, often referred to as internal medicine, is a branch of medical practice that focuses on the prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of a wide range of adult health issues. General medicine doctors, also known as internists, are medical professionals who specialize in providing comprehensive and primary care to adults.
