Internal Medicine

Internal Medicine

Internal medicine or general medicine is the medical specialty dealing with the prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of adult diseases. Doctors specializing in internal medicine are called Internists, or Physicians in Commonwealth nations. Physicians are skilled in the management of patients who have undifferentiated or multi-system disease processes.

Because internal medicine patients are often seriously ill or require complex investigations, physicians do much of their work in hospitals. Physicians often have sub-specialty interests in diseases affecting particular organs or organ systems such as cardiology, dermatology, endocrinology, geriatrics and others.

With more than 23 years of service, Timberland Medical Centre is among the leading private hospitals and medical centres in the region (Kuching, Sarawak, Borneo, Kalimantan) to specialize in Internal Medicine; assisting in the healing of the sick so that they may enjoy a better quality of life.
