Internal Medicine Q & A
What is Internal medicine?
Internal medicine is a specialty of health care that covers a broad spectrum of adult illnesses, whether chronic, acute, or urgent. As a practitioner of Internal medicine, Dr. Veerula is known as an Internist. He completed his residency at Staten Island University Hospital, NYC and earned his board certification through the American Board of Internal Medicine.
Some internal medicine physicians go on to specialize in specific medical conditions or bodily systems, such as cardiology or pulmonology. As a general internist, Dr. Veerula continues to cover the entire field of internal medicine, where he plays a key role in promoting good health and preventing disease.
Diagnosing and treating a full spectrum of diseases and health conditions, excelling in diagnosing difficult symptoms and treating patients who have a combination of different health problems are the benefits of having an internal medicine doctor.
What’s the difference between Internal medicine and Integrative medicine?
Internal medicine focuses exclusively on adults and uses conventional medical treatments, such as pharmaceutical therapies, to treat a condition. Internal medicine often addresses specific symptoms or one health concern. Integrative medicine, however, looks at the whole person and how your body, mind, and spirit contribute to the entirety of a person’s well-being.
Integrative medicine techniques may involve alternative strategies, such as IV nutrition therapy, lifestyle medicine and nutritional supplementation to support your well-being. Dr. Veerula offers both internal medicine and integrative medicine approaches when treating his patients, so you get the best of both specialties.
