Internal Medicine Q & A

What Does Internal Medicine Include?

Internal medicine is an area of the medical field that is dedicated to the care of adults. An internal medicine physician like Dr. Waldman oversees the care for his patients, acting as a primary care doctor for virtually all of their health care needs. The role of an internal medicine doctor goes far beyond the occasional check up. Patients will be able to rely on Dr. Waldman for physical exams, lab tests, treatment for heart disease, pre-operative exams, and treatment for nearly any condition that they need help with. Dr. Waldman also monitors patients who suffer from chronic conditions of all types, providing both scheduled care and urgent care through his concierge care program.

How Often Should Patients See the Doctor?

This is determined on an individual basis. For some patients, a yearly physical exam will be sufficient, especially if the patient is in peak physical health. However, most people need to see the doctor more often than that. Patients should schedule physical exams based on Dr. Waldman's recommendations and should request additional care as needed. Most people have some type of injury, illness, or health care concern occasionally. As a dedicated and highly experienced internist and cardiologist, Dr. Waldman is there to help with all of these things. Rather than putting medical care off, patients should never hesitate to reach out for help. The sooner that Dr. Waldman can see the patient, the sooner that he can help them get well.

How Can Patients Prepare For an Internal Medicine Appointment?

Some appointments require no preparation, but in cases where special preparation is needed the doctor and his staff will inform patients of this well ahead of time. For example, if blood tests are scheduled the patient may need to fast overnight or for at least several hours before the appointment.
