Department of Internal Medicine (189)
Claudia de Rossi
Specialized in: internal medicine
A Therapist, a specialist in internal medicine, has very broad medical knowledge about diseases suffered by adolescents, adults and older people. In addition, the therapist may offer a complete physical examination, which will help to identify disease at an early stage.
Complete physical examination is carried out using the most modern equipment and a high level of quality control. The therapist knows all common methods of examinations (e.g., blood and urine tests, x-ray) and can recommend exactly the method that is necessary in every individual case. Based on the results, the therapist selects the appropriate method of treatment. If the patient suffers from any chronic illness, the therapist can visit him at home, even for a long time. The therapist may also perform minor surgeries, such as stitching tissues under local anesthesia. For special treatment, the internal medicine physician will refer his patients to specialized doctors with the appropriate level of knowledge.
In many cases, specific knowledge of the specialist of internal medicine is the basis for further training in various fields, such as cardiology, rheumatology or gastroenterology.
