Internal Medicine

Internal medicine (sometimes called general medicine) is the medical specialty dealing with the prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of adult diseases. Physicians specializing in internal medicine are called internists and are especially skilled in the management of patients who have undifferentiated or multi-system disease processes. Internists care for both hospitalized and ambulatory patients and can also play a major role in teaching and research. The Internist at Continuum is Dr Ali Zentner.
