Internal Medicine Q & A

What is internal medicine?

Internal medicine focuses on adult health and wellness. Much like pediatric care for children, internal medicine is geared exclusively toward the unique needs of adults.

What kind of care do internal medicine providers offer?

Internal medicine doctors, also called internists, screen for, diagnose, treat, and prevent a broad range of illnesses and diseases. At Gulf Coast Cardiology Group PLLC, the team of experienced cardiology and internal medicine specialists focuses on heart and whole-body health.

As the number-one killer of both men and women, heart disease is a significant health threat to all adults. The team wants to save lives through non-invasive testing, early diagnosis, and preventive measures.

The experienced physicians also diagnose and treat high blood pressure, diabetes, high cholesterol, and other diseases and conditions that can cause serious health problems in adults.

What kinds of internal medicine testing will I need?

The Gulf Coast Cardiology Group PLLC team recommends screening and testing based on your age, symptoms, risk factors, and health history. Every person will need different tests at different times in their life. Among the wide array of available tests are:

  • Cholesterol blood test
