Your Adulthood Primary Care Team
Get personalized, long-term care from a Sanford Health internal medicine provider. Our doctors provide primary care to everyone over 18 years old.
Adults who have a primary care provider get better medical care and more value for the money they spend on health care. They also tend to get more preventive and diagnostic screenings, leading to better health in the long run.
Comprehensive Adult Health Care
Your internal medicine team will work with you to give you an individualized care plan based on your needs and medical history. Internists focus on long-term care for adults by building a relationship with their patients.
Primary care providers:
- Perform routine physicals
- Give wellness checkups
- Prescribe medications
- Treat common and complex diseases
- Refer patients to specialists
Internists provide general medical care. If you need highly specialized care, your primary care doctor will refer you to Sanford Health specialists. Internists work with specialists to make sure you get the best care possible.
Keeping You Healthy
Even if you don’t have symptoms, you could still have a health problem or disease. Catch health issues early with regular screenings.
It can be hard to know what age to get screened for common diseases. The recommended timeline changes depending on your medical history and your family’s predispositions. Your internist will help you decide when you should get screened for specific conditions.
