Internal Medicine Doctor
What is an Internal Medicine Doctor (Internist)?
We are “Doctors of Internal Medicine.” Or “Internists.” Internal medicine doctors are different from other doctors because we specialize in adult health care. We spend at least three years of our medical schooling learning about adults. We learn how to prevent, find and treat illness in adults. Ageonics Medical, PC is a well established and highly respected Medical Care center located in the heart of Manhattan with two convenient locations. We are Board Certified specialists in Internal Medicine, providing comprehensive office based general medical care for our patients. As Internists, we have been extensively trained in the diagnosis, evaluation and treatment of virtually all of the medical conditions that commonly occur from late adolescence through the geriatric years. Our clinical expertise includes the ability to promptly diagnose and treat acute medical illness, as well as direct the long term management of recurrent and chronic medical problems such as asthma, congestive heart failure and diabetes. In addition, we are strong advocates and practitioners of preventive health care, offering our patients the latest recommendations regarding risk factor modification, cancer detection and immunization.
We care for the whole patient
We are ready to care for any adult sickness. No matter how common or strange it is. Or how easy or hard it is.
We are always learning more about:
- The heart & blood vessels
We take care of people from their teen years through old age.We care for our patients for life.Usually we see them in our offices or clinics. Sometimes in hospitals. Sometimes in nursing homes.We manage their care even when other doctors are involved. Often other doctors ask us for help with their own patients. That gives us the nickname, “The Doctor’s Doctor.”
Caring for the Whole Patient
Internists are equipped to deal with whatever problem a patient brings — no matter how common or rare, or how simple or complex. They 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.
