What is internal medicine?

Internal medicine covers the needs of adults (ages 18 and older). Premiere Medical Center is a primary care practice specializing in internal medicine, providing comprehensive medical care for adults of all ages.

What does internal medicine encompass?

Internal medicine is the foundation of all your medical care. There are many aspects to this, including: 

Preventive care

Preventive care helps you take action now to prevent serious illness later. Annual physicals are a central element of preventive care. During your annual physical, you undergo a physical exam, disease screenings, and a review of your medical history.

The tests you need for preventive care vary depending on your age, sex, and risk factors. X-rays, lab tests, electrocardiograms (EKGs), Pap smears, and other tests are available on-site. 

The practice offers preventive screenings rarely available at other practices, including the Galleri® blood test that can detect early signs of more than 50 types of cancer. 

Preventive care also includes other ways to prevent disease, including vaccinations for flu, COVID-19, and other conditions. 

The practice personalizes your preventive care so you feel in control of your health. 

Sick care

Good preventive care can help you avoid many illnesses, but everybody occasionally gets ill or suffers an injury. The practice treats flu and other diseases in the office, as well as minor injuries like sprains and strains. On-site COVID-19 testing is also available.

Chronic care

Chronic care treats conditions like diabetes, high blood pressure (hypertension), and chronic pain. Your provider designs a chronic care management plan tailored to your condition, lifestyle, and age. 

Premiere Medical Center also provides additional types of care on-site.

Does internal medicine care include referrals to specialists?

The providers at Premiere Medical Center  want to save you time, energy, and money, so they perform virtually all services in the office, including many that normally require a specialist. 

For example, they offer pain medicine options like trigger point, cortisone, and platelet-rich plasma (PRP) injections. The practice also provides medical weight loss, testosterone therapy, addiction medicine, and other specialized services on-site. 

If you need advanced care not available in the office, your provider refers you to an experienced professional and co-manages your care with them. For example, many people need a physical therapy referral after an injury.
