Primary care doctors in Clarksville, Tennessee and the surrounding area
At Premier Medical Group, our Internal Medicine Physicians focus on preventing, diagnosing and treating health conditions in adults. Many people mistakenly believe this care is focused only on internal organs or systems, but physicians who specialize in Internal Medicine have a diverse skillset to diagnose and treat a wide range of medical issues.
Internal Medicine Physicians also are known as Internists. Their educational requirements include significant training in many subspecialties such as endocrinology, infectious disease, neurology, geriatrics, dermatology and orthopedics. Internists also complete training in both office and hospital settings. The diversity of this training allows an Internist to offer comprehensive care for a broad range of medical issues for adults.
Internists often care for adults with multiple symptoms, complications or illnesses that require ongoing medical care.
Because these physicians have wide-ranging training of complex diseases, they work to diagnose problems and manage chronic illnesses, as well as help patients understand preventative medicine and general adult health.
Some of the common chronic conditions PMG’s Internal Medicine physicians treat are:
- High cholesterol
- High blood pressure
What to expect if you are admitted to the hospital…
If a Premier Medical Group patient requires hospitalization, a physician called a Hospitalist will be the doctor who provides care for him or her during a hospital stay. These physicians are affiliated with the admitting hospital rather than our practice. However, our physician team remains in regular contact with the Hospitalist to understand the care being provided while the patient is hospitalized. When our patient is released from the hospital, he or she will return to our practice for follow-up care.
