Internal Medicine

What is internal medicine?

Internal medicine is a discipline focused on comprehensive, compassionate care of adult patients. As a board-certified internal medicine physician, Dr. Zachariah is an expert in the diagnosis and treatment of the full spectrum of medical conditions that affect adults.

At TotalMedMD, Dr. Zachariah provides primary care for men and women ages 18 and older. Internal medicine training is both comprehensive and deep, providing Dr. Zachariah with the skills to manage all types of ailments, from common colds to complex illnesses.

Internal medicine physicians are often called internists. This is not to be confused with an intern, which refers to a doctor in their first year of residency training.

What conditions does an internist treat?

The name “internal medicine” may make it sound like internists only treat problems that affect the inside of your body. However, this is not the case. Dr. Zachariah treats the whole patient, not just internal organs.

He treats a wide range of illnesses and injuries that affect adults, including:

  • Diabetes
  • Sprains and strains
  • Fractures
  • High blood pressure
  • Respiratory illness
  • Sinus infection
  • Digestive problems
  • Vascular or heart disease
  • High cholesterol
  • Hormonal problems
  • Thyroid disorders
  • Mental health
  • Urinary problems

In addition to managing acute and chronic illnesses, Dr. Zachariah provides preventive screenings and immunizations to help you stay healthy throughout life.

When should I see an internist?

If you’re an adult who needs primary care for any reason, you can schedule an appointment with Dr. Zachariah. Common reasons men and women seek internal medical care include:

  • Management of chronic health conditions such as diabetes
  • Preventive care such as blood pressure screenings
  • Adult physicals for college, employment, or health maintenance
  • Physical exams for a commercial driver’s license (CDL)
  • Acute care of injuries or illnesses, such as the flu
  • Preoperative exams before a surgical referral
  • Workers’ compensation and disability exams

In addition to seeing patients at his conveniently located office, Dr. Zachariah offers eVisits via his telemedicine portal. This provides greater access to patients who need to schedule an appointment outside of normal business hours, such as early in the morning or later at night.
