General Medicine Q & A

What is general medicine?

General internal medicine covers the vast and comprehensive spectrum of diseases and disorders that affect adults. The board-certified family and internal medicine physicians at Arundel Medical Group have advanced expertise in managing all aspects of your general health care, including disease prevention and advice on maintaining a healthy lifestyle.

What conditions does a general physician treat?

The skilled general physicians at Arundel Medical Group provide primary care for all medical problems that don’t require surgery, including minor injuries like cuts (lacerations). They diagnose the underlying cause of your symptoms, including chest pain, back pain, or abdominal pain. 

The team at Arundel Medical Group also manages a variety of chronic (long-term) conditions, such as:

  • High blood pressure (hypertension)
  • Respiratory problems, such as asthma and Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD)
  • Thyroid disease
  • Diabetes
  • Anemia

If you get hit with a sudden cold, flu, or stomach bug, you can walk into Arundel Medical Group or schedule an appointment to see your general physician at a later date.

What tests can a general physician perform?

The general physicians at Arundel Medical Group may take tests to get more information about your health. Depending on your needs, these in-house tests may include:

  • Laboratory tests, including blood and urine
  • Electrocardiograms (EKGs)
  • Blood pressure measurements

They may also analyze the results from tests they order, such as:

  • X-rays
  • Ultrasounds
  • Echocardiograms
  • Computerized tomography (CT) scans
  • Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) scans

Depending on what these tests reveal, your general physician may refer you to a specialist, such as a cardiologist, endocrinologist, or orthopedic surgeon.

What should I expect from a visit to my general physician?

Your Arundel Medical Group physician begins by asking about your symptoms and reviewing your medical history. They perform a physical exam, which includes checking your heart, lungs, thyroid, hydration status, and nervous system. They may take tests, such as blood work, or radiographic imaging, to help diagnose your condition. 

Then, your physician recommends the most appropriate treatment for your specific needs. This varies based on your condition, but may include:

  • Lifestyle changes, such as healthy weight loss
  • Medications to control your condition
  • Physical therapy or chiropractic care
