Internal Medicine Q&A

What is internal medicine?

Internal medicine is adult-focused medical care. Medical professionals who specialize in internal medicine have advanced training in adult medicine, including the diagnosis, treatment, and long-term management of illnesses and chronic diseases. Additionally, internal medicine specialists may also treat young adults.

What does internal medicine include?

Northeast Florida Internal Medicine takes on medical issues of all types with complete dedication and commitment to meeting every patient’s expectations. You get truly comprehensive internal medicine care in the Jacksonville office, including: 


Sick care

Sick care covers the flu, COVID-19, colds, minor injuries, and other problems that arise suddenly. Treatment can ease your symptoms and help you recover faster.

Preventive health care

Many common diseases, like Type 2 diabetes, are preventable with this type of health care. Preventive health care helps you take steps to live a healthy life and avoid illness and disease. It can include weight loss management, lifestyle changes, health education, and other ways of being proactive about your health. 

Annual exams

Annual exams are an important method of monitoring your health. They’re a major aspect of preventive health care. The lab testing and diagnostics commonly included in annual exams help detect issues early so you can get treatment. In this way, you can stop disease progression or even prevent it altogether. 

Chronic disease management

About 60% of Americans have a chronic condition like Type 2 diabetes, cardiovascular disease, or obesity. Proper medical management of your condition can prevent it from worsening and greatly improve your day-to-day life. The team also treats Lyme disease, attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), and other chronic illnesses.

Coordinated care

Certain medical problems may require specialist attention. In that situation, the team coordinates your care with other medical specialists, ensuring excellent continuity of care.

Northeast Florida Internal Medicine strives to be a one-stop destination for all your medical needs in virtually every situation. Because they provide so many services in the office, you’ll get convenient and comprehensive care.

How often should I see my internal medicine specialist?

The team evaluates your medical history and your most recent physical results to determine your medical care schedule. Along with your annual physical, you might need other appointments. For example, if you have ADHD, you’ll have appointments every three months either in person or via telehealth.
