At The Doctor’s House, internal medicine is a unique experience, in that we not only focus on the treatment, diagnosis, and prevention of illness, but we also focus in root cause, wellness medicine, and helping you age gracefully.
Internal medicine at The Doctor’s House includes medical evaluations, diagnoses, and treatments of common chronic diseases, illnesses, and injuries, as well as root cause medicine.
Root cause is finding the underlying causes of disease which may due to medical and non-medical causes, and instituting appropriate treatment based on the underlying cause.
