Internal Medicine

Internists are specialized in the practice of general medicine. Their role is to:

  • Coordinate complex diagnoses by consolidating the work of the other specialists involved
  • Or personally treat patients suffering from complex diseases (infectious, inflammatory and autoimmune diseases) while consulting their colleagues specializing in these disciplines

Thanks to the American Hospital’s particularly large and responsive diagnostics and testing service and the on-site presence of physicians in all specializations, our internists can establish an accurate diagnosis within a very short time frame and offer patients the most appropriate therapy.

Our internists also contribute to the seamless continuity of care offered by the American Hospital by ensuring on-call service 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
