Internal / General Medicine Q & A

What is internal medicine?

Internal medicine is a branch of adult health care concerned with the prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of adult health concerns. Often, internal medicine doctors – called internists – have advanced training to understand complex disease processes and chronic illnesses.

Internal medicine can also be called general medicine because it treats the entire body, including all organs and how they function together. At Today’s Integrative Health, Dr. Leo provides internal and general medical care for all adults in the Rockville area.

Dr. Leo has decades of experience as an internal medicine specialist with a special interest in integrative health and functional medicine. His goal is to support your overall health by preventing or reducing the severity of chronic diseases and developing strategies to improve your quality of life.

Internists care for people with complicated health issues, including:

  • Diabetes
  • Emphysema
  • Heart disease
  • High cholesterol
  • Hypertension
  • Menopause

When these health concerns overlap, which is common, you need a specialist who understands what you’re going through and how to help you. As an internist, Dr. Leo prides himself on truly listening to you to understand your situation and how he can help you.
