Internal medicine is a medical specialty that focuses on the diagnosis, prevention and treatment of diseases that affect adult patients. It encompasses a wide array of subspecialties, including gastroenterology, hematology, oncology, pulmonology, cardiology and more. Skilled internists like Dr. Daneshrad are also trained in handling women's and men's health issues, mental health issues and substance abuse issues, as well as medical conditions ranging from common colds to complex chronic and acute health problems.
Every internal medicine consultation is different, based on each patient's symptoms and health needs. Dr. Daneshrad will begin the consultation by discussing your concerns and taking a complete health history, including a history of family members' medical issues to identify potential risk factors. He'll also conduct a comprehensive medical exam and may order lab tests or health screenings to check for diseases or identify risk factors. And he'll provide you with guidance and advice to help you make lifestyle changes that can help you live the healthiest life possible.

No; an intern is a doctor in his or her first year of residency training. An internist, or doctor of internal medicine, has already completed medical training, including special training in adult diseases and health issues.
