What is an internist?
A doctor that specifically studies internal medicine is known as an internist. These medical professionals are specially trained to prevent, diagnose, and care for a wide range of health conditions for adult patients. After medical school, these professionals complete a 3-year residency program in adult diseases and often spend another 1-3 years studying a specific medical specialty including cardiology and urology.
The practicing internists at Wellspire Medical Group in Humble, work hard to help diagnose and treat a wide range of medical conditions and diseases in adult patients. These physicians are able to help patients manage multiple conditions at onces, as well as treat short-term problems that may have an interaction with their chronic illnesses.
What is a family practitioner?
Family doctors are very similar to internists, however they are trained to treat patients of all ages including children. Family doctors will also complete a 3-year residency, however this will be more focused on office-based health care instead of hospital-based health care. Additionally, family doctor’s residency will also include training in obstetrics.
In many cases, a family doctor will be able to work with and treat every member of a family from the youngest to the oldest. Many families find this to be an advantageous way to track hereditary issues and provide their physicians with an in-person understanding of their family history.
