Internal & General Medicine

An internist general practitioner as your attending physician

 

Experienced in internal and general medicine, this health practitioner is dedicated to you and will assist you throughout your stay. He coordinates specialized tests and analyzes their results in order to treat and advise each patient based on his or her personal situation.

 

Unlike specialists, such as cardiologists, pneumologists or gastroenterologists for example, the internist focuses on the patient's overall state of health, while working closely with specialists, if required.

 

Following their stay, many patients choose their Clinique La Prairie attending physician as their family physician for their daily lives.

 

For patients in ambulatory care, the general practitioner's role is:

  • to manage the patient's general file
  • to be the primary care specialist
  • to coordinate the patient's checkups
