What is an Internist
An Internist compiles a comprehensive "case file" on each patient-detailing the present symptoms and a history of physical and emotional difficulties. The mark of an Internist is Thoroughness and compilation of Medical history. The study of the Medical history is done meticulously taking as much time as deemed necessary. As a historian often predicts through knowledge of the past, so an internist diagnoses illness from a patient’s medical history and symptoms. Through analysis and interpretation of a patient's medical history, physical condition, and the results of modern scientific tests, the Internist is trained to reach a diagnostic conclusion by considering even seemingly unrelated clues.
As A Personal Physician
Internists establish caring and continuing relationships with their patients. Dr. Infantolino recognizes each individual has unique needs and medical management is individualized for each patient.
As A Consultant
The Internist's special knowledge and diagnostic skills are extensive. As a Consultant, Dr. Infantolino will not personally undertake treatment unless the referring physician requests them to do so.
The Value Of An Internist
The fees charged by the Internists, as a Medical Specialist, are generally somewhat higher than those of the general practitioner in keeping with the overall structure of medical fees. The Internist's fees are, quite naturally, directly related to the value of the time devoted to the diagnosis of the patient's illness, to its management and to the complexity of judgment required in the case.
