What is an internal medicine doctor?
An Internal Medicine doctor is trained in the medical specialty of Internal Medicine. Many doctors thus trained practice primary care medicine. Others go on to training in sub-specialties such as endocrinology, gastroenterology or cardiology.
Should I make an appointment to meet a new doctor?
When you schedule your first appointment with a doctor you should take the view you are interviewing the doctor to see if he or she is one you would like to care for you. Have a list of questions ready and do not be hesitant to raise issues of concern to you. Of course, the doctor will be discussing your health history and getting to know you at the same time.
