Internal Medicine Q & A

MyMD Medical Group

What is Internal Medicine?

Physicians who specialize in internal medicine are trained to deal with every type of physical, emotional, and behavioral problem that affects adults at all ages, whether it’s a common cold, an emotional struggle, or a complex, long-term disease.

Internists receive extensive training in the complete range of medical conditions, as well as diverse specialties. You can count on your internist at MyMD Medical Group to diagnose and treat health concerns related to endocrinology, rheumatology, infectious diseases, and geriatrics, to name just a few.

What Internal Medicine Services are Available at MyMD Medical Group?

Your physician at MyMD Medical Group serves as your primary care doctor. The team practices holistic and integrative health, which means they consider how every component of your life -- work, stress, diet, exercise, and the environment -- impact your health. They work together with you to find a balance that provides optimal wellness and quality of life.

Dr. Paul Grewal and Dr. Sowa offer a wide range of preventive, diagnostic, and treatment services:

  • Management of chronic conditions

Why is Preventive Care Important?

Preventive care is one of the most important components of internal medicine. The purpose of preventive care is to screen for common health problems and monitor your physical and mental health over time. This process allows Dr. Paul Grewal and Dr. Sowa to identify any potential health problems before they become serious and treat them effectively. Wellness appointments also give you an opportunity to ask questions about your health or address any concerns you may have.

What Coaching Services are Available?

The doctors at MyMD Medical Group view health care as a process, not a destination, so they created coaching programs designed to support your life and wellness goals. They begin with a medically-supervised self-tracking project to target the precise cause of your symptoms.

It takes about 12 weeks to collect sufficient information about your nutritional, sleeping, exercise, and other habits relevant to your health and symptoms. Specialized lab tests are ordered as necessary, and your medical history is thoroughly reviewed. After identifying the root cause of your health problem, a customized treatment plan is developed and implemented.
