How Adult Patients Benefit from Orlando Internal Medicine
It is estimated that the typical family practice nowadays has an adult patient load of 85% to 90%. Although the length of post-medical school training remains about the same for both family practitioners and internists, the required training can differ significantly. Internal medicine subspecialties include the application of endocrinology, rheumatology, infectious diseases, geriatrics, non-operative orthopedics, and rehabilitative medicine for the comprehensive care of adult patients. In addition, internal medicine physicians are experienced in hospital-based work and trained to provide both pre-op and post-operative care as a patient’s doctor of record.
Since family medicine education is broader in nature than internal medicine, general practitioners typically adapt their practice to meet the specific needs of the medical community they serve. At Delta Internal Medicine Center, our Orlando internist places emphasis on the continuity of care, health maintenance, disease prevention, management of complex illnesses, wellness programs, and medication management for an adult population only. Many of our downtown Orlando patients now prefer the convenience of our adult practice setting as well as our unique ability to care for the specific needs of today’s adult patient.
