General Medicine
Internal medicine (or general medicine) is the medical specialty dealing with the prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of adult diseases. Physicians specializing in internal medicine are called internists, or physicians. Physicians are especially skilled in the management of patients who have undifferentiated ormulti-system disease processes. 

Since internal medicine patients are often seriously ill or require complex investigations, Physicians do much of their work in hospitals. Physicians often have subspecialty interests in diseases affecting particular organs or organ systems. Specialists in internal medicine care for a wide variety of patients. They may be suffering from any of a number of common disorders, may have multiple conditions or complex needs, or may represent a diagnostic conundrum. It is the Rockland’s specialist's responsibility to coordinate these patients' continuing care. As with acute medicine, specialists in this field collaborate with doctors from all other medical specialties, as well as other medical professionals such as nurses and therapists.
