Internal medicine includes disease affecting the heart, blood, kidneys, joints, digestive system, respiratory system, vascular system, infection, diagnosis and treatment of cancer. Internal medicine doctors manage complex illness in adolescents, adults, and the elderly. They provide long-term comprehensive care in the office and at hospitals. They are also trained in the essentials of primary care and internal medicine, which incorporates an understanding of disease prevention, wellness, substance abuse, mental health, and effective treatment of common problems of the eyes, ears, skin, nervous system, and reproductive organs. See our "Internal Medicine" page for more information.
Sleep Apnea is an involuntary cease in breathing that occurs while the patient is asleep. Left untreated, sleep apnea can have serious and life-shortening consequences: high blood pressure, heart disease, stroke, automobile accidents caused by falling asleep at the wheel, diabetes, depression, and other ailments. Fortunately, Sleep Apnea can be diagnosed and treated. Several treatment options exist, and research into additional options continues. A sleep study can be done to determine if you have Sleep Apnea. See our "Sleep Apnea" page for more information.
Why it's so important for men to see a doctor, even when they don't feel "bad". For a variety of reasons, primary care for men usually goes to the bottom of their priority list. Men tend put off scheduling annual appointments with their health care provider. Some men are hesitant to discuss their concerns because they don't want to worry their family, while others are afraid of being perceived as "whining" when they discuss bothersome (or embarrassing) symptoms or injuries.
This hesitancy to discuss their health can prevent men from getting the timely care that they need. By the time men visit a doctor for an illness or injury that’s been plaguing them, they may have a more advanced diagnosis or require a more advanced treatment than they would have had they consulted with their physician earlier.
Remember, a primary care physician is like a quarterback for your health. He can help you stay in the game! See our "Men's Health" page for more information.
