Internists are Physicians who combine the science of laboratory medicine with accessible patient care. They are considered to be the back bone of the entire range of medical specialities. They deal with prevention, diagnosis and treatment of all diseases in the adult population. We are a group of experienced physicians capable of providing cross-specialty care across a wide spectrum of diseases.
They are considered the cohesive forces between the various specialists and strive for the complete and comprehensive care of the patients.
