Internal medicine doctors, sometimes called “internists,” “general internists” or “doctors of internal medicine,” specialize in adult health care. They are considered primary care providers, but not family practitioners.
“At least three of their seven or more years of medical school and postgraduate training are dedicated to learning how to prevent, diagnose, and treat diseases that affect adults. Internists are sometimes referred to as the ‘doctor’s doctor,’ because they are often called upon to act as consultants to other physicians to help solve puzzling diagnostic problems,” according to the American College of Physicians.
