Internal medicine specialists, or ‘internists’ ( میڈیسن کے سپیشلسٹ ڈاکٹر ) are doctors who specialise in treating adults via medicine. They are not involved in interventional procedures and don’t conduct any surgeries. They generally are the patient’s first line of contact. Then, for the more complicated and specific cases, they refer patients to a specialist doctor.
An internal medicine specialist should be seen whenever there is something medically wrong with you –unless it is obviously specific in nature like a broken limb. You should consult them when you have any kind of infection (انفیکشن), fever (بخار), cough (کھانسی), cold, headache (سر درد) etc.
They also treat specific conditions such as diabetes, hypertension, heart disease, stomach problems like ulcer (السر), thyroid (تھایرایڈ) problems or any other hormonal imbalance etc. Furthermore, internists are also equipped to provide treatments for viral infections like the coronavirus (کورونا وائرس), dengue (ڈینگی) and malaria (ملیریا) as well.

Internal medicine is an extremely broad field that has multiple subspecialities. Doctors may be practising several at once even.
