Dubai London Hospital’s internists, or as they are more commonly called, internal medicine doctors, are specialists in providing adult healthcare. They are trained to provide a series of treatments that help patients with diabetes, hypertension, infections, asthma, etc. It is a comprehensive portfolio and covers cardiology (heart diseases), endocrinology (hormone disorders), haematology (blood disorders), infectious diseases, gastroenterology (diseases of the gut), nephrology (kidney diseases) and pulmonology (lung disorders). Our physicians apply their experienced and scientific knowledge in order to diagnose and treat adults with a very broad range of health concerns and diseases. These include all conditions that affect any of the body’s systems.
Internists offer counselling and recommend preventive interventions for improved overall health. They also often commit to life-long comprehensive care and palliative care, especially in cases where there are mental health disorders present, such as depression and anxiety caused by abnormal activities in the brain, a chronic disease, or hormonal imbalances.
At Dubai London Hospital, we recognize that our internists play a very important role in medicine because they combine the analytical examination of laboratory science with a personalised, compassionate approach to adult medicine. That special capability enables doctors to treat both common illnesses and complex medical conditions. Internists with a subspecialty are highly trained to focus their efforts on complications that arise from one specific condition. Internists offer preventative care and suggest treatments ranging from cancer screenings to mammograms. They are also instrumental in helping patients plan their schedules and establish a regular routine.
Our internists effectively treat diabetes, high cholesterol, high blood pressure, sinus infections, allergies, and asthma, and an array of other acute and chronic ailments. Internists are also responsible for the holistic treatment of patients including the maintenance and prevention of health problems, to promote overall wellness.
