We care for patients with a wide variety of health issues, and counsel patients on how to achieve overall wellness.
Advanced education and training are required to become an internist. At ELNA, emphasis is placed on combining the latest in medical science with the ultimate in personalized care. Our internists are experts in the overall functioning of the adult body, and recognize that certain conditions can adversely affect several bodily systems. They look at the human body as a unified system, in order to draw connections between symptoms and potential causes. Conditions addressed by internal medicine include:
- Arthritis and rheumatism
- Overall fatigue
- Metabolic syndrome
- Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD)
- Autoimmune diseases
When preparing for an internal medicine appointment, check with your private insurance to see if the consultation is covered. Also, be sure to bring your health insurance card, a list of your symptoms and any medications you are taking, as well as any questions you may have.
