The medical specialty that deals with the diagnosis, treatment, and prevention of diseases occurring in an adult is called internal medicine. The sub-specialties of internal medicine are pulmonology, cardiology, endocrinology, gastroenterology, hematology, hepatology, nephrology, rheumatology, immunology, infectious diseases, and geriatrics.
The doctor who specializes in this field is called an internist or an internal medicine doctor. They treat patients from their late teen years to old age. Internists usually are confused with a family physician. The difference between them is that internist does not specialize in treating children.
Few of the conditions that an internist treats are respiratory diseases, digestive disorders, kidney problems, urinary problems, diabetes, joint pain, blood disorders, infectious diseases, all general conditions, heart diseases, neurological disorders, and mental health.
An internist is trained to treat you for something as routine as a cold or cough to more complex heart or lung diseases. They can serve as a primary care physician or as a consultant to other specialties. An internist acts as a personal physician to their patients and often develop a long-term relationship with them. As it might not be possible to meet a doctor as soon as you start having any symptom, medical platforms have made it possible to consult an internist online
