Internal Medicine

What is internal medicine?

Internal medicine is the field of medicine focusing on the diagnosis and treatment of common and complex health conditions in adults. 

Dr. Dorio is an internal medicine specialist with extensive experience and training in adult health conditions, including appropriate disease screenings and tests, health counseling, and medication management for chronic diseases.

As an internist, Dr. Dorio pays special attention to the health and function of all of your internal organs and how they affect each other. He deals with complex health issues that can begin in one area of your body, like high blood pressure in your arteries, then affect organs throughout your body including your heart, lungs, and kidneys. 

As your internist, Dr. Dorio works closely with you to monitor your health, any signs of trouble, and manage chronic diseases to give you the best care possible.

What conditions do internists see?

As an adult health specialist, Dr. Dorio provides care for conditions like:

  • High blood pressure
  • High cholesterol
  • Diabetes
  • Heart disease
  • Kidney disease
  • Obesity

Dr. Dorio recommends an annual physical for all patients to screen for these diseases and discuss any symptoms you're experiencing. Follow-up care and testing can give you the support and information you need to make choices that support your health.

How are internal medicine issues diagnosed?

To diagnose an internal medicine issue, Dr. Dorio begins with a thorough consultation and physical exam. He asks about your overall health, symptoms, medical history, and family history. 

During your exam, he checks your blood pressure, weight, and heart rate before collecting a blood sample.

Your blood sample is taken to check your cholesterol and blood sugar levels, among other markers for less common or rare diseases, if you have a family history or show any signs or symptoms. 

Based on your exam and test results, Dr. Dorio explains where you're at with your overall health and what areas need improvement or treatment, if appropriate.

Do I need to take medication for my condition?

In addition to healthy lifestyle habits, Dr. Dorio may prescribe medication to manage any condition you might have. If this is the case, he explains how often to take your medication and how long you'll need to take it. 

Some conditions require long-term medication usage, so Dr. Dorio follows up with you regularly to ensure your prescription is managing your condition effectively.
