NGPG Internal Medicine physicians have special training focused on the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of adult diseases. These physicians, sometimes called internists, work to solve diagnostic problems and can treat multiple problems ranging from sore throat to heart disease.
And at NGPG Internal Medicine in Gainesville, we have a board-certified geriatrician on staff to care for patients 65+ years old. The goal of Geriatric Medicine is to help patients manage their health conditions while remaining independent for as long as possible. Our geriatricians also pay close attention to each patients’ social interactions and personal values. They ask intentional questions that are important for those who are 65+ and help find an approach that works for them.
