Information about Internal Medicine

Overview

Access comprehensive care for adults

Whether you are uncertain about a sudden health concern, can’t seem to shake the common cold, or are worried because of your family history, an internist can help. Internists are primary care physicians for adults age 18 and over. At Vancouver Clinic, our internists manage everything from chronic diseases to sudden illnesses throughout your adult life. This includes diagnosing issues, creating a treatment plan, and discussing preventive options. Our doctors’ deep training in issues and diseases that impact adults enables them to diagnose and manage complex medical situations—and put you on the path to better health.

FAQs

What conditions do internists treat?
We treat the whole patient. There are no conditions too complex to be outside the range of our care. We serve as the first-line provider when health issues arise and will coordinate all of your care.

My grandfather has an internist, but I think I’m too young to worry about it. How old should I be before I see an internist?
Everyone—children and adults—should receive regular primary care to prevent health issues and manage chronic concerns. If you’re 18 years or older, you may choose to see a family medicine provider or an internist. If you’re concerned about your current health and long-term wellness goals, or need help managing multiple conditions, an internist may be right for you. Even if you are young and healthy, your internist can partner with you to stay well and screen for diseases at the right time for you.

What is the difference between a family medicine and internal medicine provider?
A family medicine doctor provides health care for all ages at every stage of life (from birth through childhood and adulthood). Internists focus on adults age 18 and over and have additional training in caring for elderly patients. Internists deal with many acute and chronic medical problems, as well as issues related to health maintenance.

How do I find an internist?
Call Vancouver Clinic’s Patient Services Center at (360)-882-2778 and ask for a new patient appointment with one of our internists. We can help identify providers who have openings and who are a good match for you. Learn more about our providers by reading their bios.
