Internal medicine is a medical specialty that focuses on the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of diseases in adults. At Perry County Memorial Hospital (PCMH), internal medicine is provided by board-certified physicians, called internists. They are trained to treat common chronic illnesses, such as hypertension, diabetes, high blood pressure, high cholesterol and asthma. Internists can also effectively manage acute ailments, such as common problems of the eyes, ears, sinuses, throat, lungs, heart, kidneys, nervous system and genitourinary systems. They evaluate common complaints such as cough, fever, headaches, chest pains, shortness of breath, abdominal pain and back pain as well.
Disease prevention and health promotion are of utmost importance to the internists at PCMH. Timely screening tests and healthy lifestyles are incorporated into each patient's care to prevent the development of chronic diseases, infections and malignancies. PCMH internists are an important partner in promoting each patient's health and well-being.
