Internal medicine doctors provide primary medical care for adults, including diagnosis and treatment of diseases and illnesses, routine care, and preventative medicine. Internal medicine doctors may be referred to as internists, general internists, or doctors of internal medicine.
An internist attends medical school for four years and receives a minimum of three years of training in a hospital or clinic as an intern and resident. Upon completion of training a doctor may earn board certification after rigorous testing and peer review. Board certification is recognition of the doctor’s extensive training and medical skills.
Internists are certified by the American Board of Internal Medicine. All Wake Internal Medicine and Pediatrics doctors are board certified in Internal Medicine. A number of the doctors hold additional board certifications in subspecialties including Pediatrics, Pulmonary Medicine, Geriatrics, Sleep Medicine, and Gastroenterology. We have doctors that specialize in the care you and your family need.
