Internal Medicine

Internal medicine is a critical branch of adult healthcare, specializing in diagnosing, treating, and preventing a wide array of adult illnesses. Known as internists, these physicians have expertise in handling complex diseases affecting multiple systems in the body, as well as in managing chronic conditions. They play a crucial role in patient health, offering comprehensive care that ranges from solving diagnostic puzzles to coordinating treatment plans across various specialties. Internists are key in guiding patients through their healthcare journey, emphasizing preventive care and overall wellness.

Assessment

Our Internal Medicine team specializes in evaluating patients with a variety of medical conditions and complex health issues. We excel in diagnosing challenging cases, particularly for symptoms like shortness of breath, kidney problems, and hypertension, where the underlying cause is not immediately clear.

Collaboration

Our collaborative approach ensures seamless integration with specialized care. If needed, patients are referred to surgeons or other specialists within Ridgecrest Regional Hospital’s extensive network. Your internal medicine physician will develop a tailored treatment plan that aligns with and supports the care provided by our specialty care doctors.
