Internal Medicine

Internal Medicine in Brooklyn

If you have ever wondered what an internal medicine doctor specializes in, the answer is pretty much everything in adult healthcare. Internal medicine encompasses all of your body’s major systems – cardiac and cardiovascular, circulatory, gastrointestinal or digestive, pulmonary or respiratory and reproductive – just about everything from head to toe.

Our internal medicine doctor and nurse practitioners take great pleasure in helping adults 18 and older from all walks of life who live in nearby Brooklyn, East Flatbush, Flatbush, Park Slope and Prospect Lefferts Garden communities. Our internal medicine team provides a multitude of heart health, diabetes and chronic illness care and services. These conditions require ongoing care, treatment and management by a physician or nurse practitioner. Many adults are also taking multiple prescription medications, which really need management by a physician to prevent any harmful drug interactions.

Preventive care

At LaSante Health Center, we believe very strongly in preventive care. In addition to medication management, we test and treat high blood pressure, or hypertension. Hypertension treatment is preventive care in that it can help you avoid a heart attack or stroke resulting from untreated high blood pressure. Because even if you have no symptoms, hypertension can kill you unless you get it under control. Most high blood pressure can be controlled with lifestyle changes and/or medication. Quitting smoking, eating really healthy, nutritious foods, avoiding stress and maintaining a healthy weight can all help you keep your blood pressure in check.

Pain treatment

Many people also come to us for pain treatment. Pain can result from any number of conditions, diseases and injuries, and pain treatment is critical to your ability to function and perform routine daily activities. Our internal medicine team wants you to live without pain and experience the best quality of life possible.
