Internal medicine specialists (internists) are primary care doctors who focus on preventing, identifying, and treating health conditions in adults. At University of Miami Health System, you can count on our internal medicine team to provide expert care in a patient-centered setting.
Our internists focus on the whole person, not just your health condition. Our goal is to improve your health by addressing your physical, mental, and social well-being. We care for people with all sorts of health concerns — including cardiovascular disease, hypertension, diabetes, high cholesterol, musculoskeletal disorders, and more. Your internist works with other specialists to coordinate your care and help manage any chronic conditions.
We help you maintain good health and avoid serious illness using nonsurgical methods. Most importantly, we promote lifelong health. We work closely with you to keep you healthy.
