Cleveland Clinic Florida is home to an experienced team of internal medicine physicians (internists). Internists, like family medicine physicians, are primary care doctors. But internists focus on caring for adults, while family medicine physicians also treat children.
We offer a range of services, from preventive care to diagnosing and managing chronic or complex conditions. We oversee your health in all life’s stages by helping you stay connected to the providers and services you need.
Adult Primary Care: Why Choose Cleveland Clinic Florida?
Highlights of our internal medicine program include:
- Team-based approach: Your internal medicine doctor leads a team of nurses and physician assistants who work with pharmacists, radiologists, pathologists and other specialists. Multiple providers collaborate to ensure you receive seamlessly coordinated, comprehensive care.
- Expert team: Cleveland Clinic Florida is home to a fellowship program in internal medicine. Our internists are clinical and academic leaders in their field, training future doctors in the best care practices.
- Specialty care coordination: People with chronic or complex illnesses may need care from multiple specialists. Your internist provides referrals and communicates with your other providers. This ensures all the members of your care team are up to date on your medical history and health risks.
