  What's an internist?
     
 
internist doctor in Richmond Texas, internist doctor Sugar land, internist physician Richmond TX
Simply put, doctors of internal medicine are Doctors for Adults. But you may see us referred to by several terms, including "internists," "general internists" and "doctors of internal medicine." But don't mistake us with "interns," who are doctors in their first year of residency training!
 
Although internists may act as primary care physicians, we are not "family physicians," "family practitioners," or "general practitioners," whose training is not solely concentrated on adults and may include surgery, obstetrics and pediatrics
 
Caring for the whole patient
As an Internist I am equipped to deal with a multitude of medical problems — no matter how common or rare, or how simple or complex. I am specially trained to solve puzzling diagnostic problems, and can handle chronic illnesses and situations where several different illnesses may strike at the same time. One of the most important parts of my job is bringing to my patients an understanding of wellness. This encapsulates disease prevention and the promotion of health. Be it women's health, or the effective treatment of common problems, an Internist is who you turn to first.
 
     
  Because we are involved with many aspects of medicine I, as an Internist, am acutely aware of the ways that different parts and systems of the body interact. With this broad clinical knowledge I try to encourage my patients to become personally involved with and responsible for their own good health practices, while I deliver effective patient-centered medical care with compassion and concern.†  
     
  And For those who love arcane knowledge  
  In case you were wondering, the term "Internal Medicine" comes from the German term Innere Medizin, a discipline popularized in Germany in the late 1800s to describe physicians who combined the science of the laboratory with the care of patients. Many early 20th century American doctors studied medicine in Germany and brought this medical field to the United States. Thus, the name "internal medicine" was adopted. Like many words adopted from other languages, it unfortunately doesn't exactly fit an American meaning.
