General Medicine physicians serve as primary care physicians for adult patients. The doctors provide a wide range of non-surgical health care services, including physical examinations, preventive screenings, immunizations, urgent care for medical conditions, and referrals to appropriate specialists.
The Brooklyn Hospital Center Internists deal with an extremely wide variety of conditions, from the simple to the complex. They are particularly skilled at managing severe chronic illnesses and situations where several different illnesses may strike at the same time.
They also bring to patients an understanding of wellness (disease prevention and the promotion of health), women's health, substance abuse, mental health, as well as effective treatment of common problems of the eyes, ears, skin, nervous system and reproductive organs.
