Internal Medicine

NOMS’ internal medicine specialists focus on adult medicine and have had special study and training focusing on the prevention and treatment of adult diseases. 

Our Internists are specially trained to solve puzzling diagnostic problems and can handle severe chronic illnesses and situations where several different illnesses may strike at the same time. They also bring to patients an understanding of wellness (disease prevention and the promotion of health), women's health, substance abuse, mental health, as well as effective treatment of common problems of the eyes, ears, skin, nervous system, and reproductive organs.

When other medical specialists, such as surgeons or obstetricians are involved, they coordinate patient care and manage difficult medical problems associated with that care.

At a Glance

Gastroenterology

Gastroenterology concerns the diagnosis and treatment of disorders of the digestive system. These disorders may affect the esophagus, stomach, small intestine, large intestine (colon), rectum, liver, gallbladder, or pancreas. It is commonly and colloquially referred to as GI, which stands for gastrointestinal.

 

Geriatrics

Internal medicine specialists are trained to diagnose conditions that often present differently in older adults; develop care plans that address the special physical and mental health care needs of older adults; communicate with appropriate providers in other areas of specialty, family members and other caregivers; and, take a patient-centered, holistic approach to maintaining older adults’ functional status, independence and best possible quality of life.

 

Diabetes

Internal medicine providers can guide patients with diabetes on when and how to take medicine or inject insulin; check blood sugar and notate results; and, manage diet and exercise. Often the provider will engage other healthcare specialists to form a team to help manage a patient’s disease to prevent the advent or worsening of related conditions.
