Internal medicine or general internal medicine is the medical specialty dealing with the prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of internal diseases. Physicians specializing in internal medicine are called internists, or physicians in Commonwealth nations.
General Physicians are highly trained specialists who provide a range of non-surgical health care to adult patients. They care for difficult, serious or unusual medical problems and continue to see the patient until these problems have resolved or stabilised.
This field of medicine deals with non-surgical treatment of diseases by diagnosis through study and management with medication. However, severe and terminal illnesses are also treated by general physicians where they merely guide the patient as to what steps to follow as a precaution and how to reduce the condition.
