Internal medicine is a field of practice focused on treating adults. Doctors prevent, diagnose, and treat diseases that afflict all adults, from chronically ill patients to short-term care.

Internal medicine physicians, or internists, are specialists who apply scientific knowledge and clinical expertise to the diagnosis, treatment, and care of adults across the spectrum from health to complex illness. An internist can act as your "primary care provider"  or PCP. Preventative medicine is a major focus, but your PCP can also assess and treat acute and chronic healthcare problems. 

Internists routinely see patients with conditions such as:

  • Heart disease
  • Hypertension
  • Diabetes
  • Obesity
  • Chronic lung disease
  • Asthma
  • Acute respiratory infections and more

Depending on your condition, your physician may need to refer you to one of the specialists at Olean Medical Group or in the community. We have several providers who are board-certified by the American Board of Internal Medicine Practice and are here to help. Get in touch with us today to schedule an appointment.
