The Mystery of Medicine

When we talk about medicine, it’s often easier to look at different diseases and conditions as clear-cut, independent problems. In reality, that’s simply not how your body works. A disease of one organ can cause problems elsewhere in your body, leading to still more interconnected problems. Or you may have an unusual collection of symptoms that don’t seem to point to any one disease. This is where doctors of internal medicine (also called ‘internists’) come in.

Getting to the Root

Internal medicine often deals with patients who are seriously ill. The physicians who have chosen this as their specialty are experts at untangling complicated medical problems and getting to the root causes of intertwined conditions and disease processes.
