Finding the right doctor can help you lead a healthier, happier life. Across the Sutter Health network, internal medicine doctors, or internists, are primary care physicians (PCPs) committed to serving as long-term health partners for you. Internists focus on preventing, diagnosing and treating disorders—particularly those that affect internal systems.
Your internist can help you make lifestyle changes that will improve your overall health. Internists offer an extensive range of nonsurgical medical services including:
- Preventive care
- Physical exams and evaluations
- Management of chronic conditions
- Mental health evaluations
- Treatment of certain infectious diseases
- Geriatric care
