Importance of Adult Medicine
Even after your body is done growing, it never stops changing. Adult medicine, also known as internal medicine, is designed around the primary care needs of patients ages 18 and over. Doctors like Dr. Parikh who provide adult medicine are trained in the essentials of primary care, including issues and complications that might emerge over the various stages of life. Also known as “internists” or “general internists,” physicians who provide adult medicine should not be confused with “interns,” who are doctors in their first year of training after medical school.
