General Adult Medicine Q & A

by Josier M. Nisnisan, MD

What is general adult medicine?

Sometimes called primary care physicians (PCPs) or internists, doctors who practice general medicine specialize in the long-term diagnosis, treatment, and prevention of diseases and are often the primary contact for an adult’s medical needs.

Dr. Nisnisan conducts annual medical physicals, where he can monitor your health and administrates preventive medical screenings. These doctors also treat patients with chronic and complex diseases and may have to engage in medication management.

What conditions are treated in general medicine?

Internists treat a range of acute and chronic conditions. Dr. Nisnisan diagnoses and treats common conditions like:

  • Hypertension
  • Diabetes
  • Asthma
  • High cholesterol
  • Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD)
  • Hypothyroidism
  • Hyperthyroidism
  • Heart disease

Dr. Nisnisan also provides preventive medicine. This may include counseling on lifestyle habits, such as encouraging you to quit smoking or discussing the impacts of a high-sodium diet. Preventive care may include testing or screening for certain conditions, including cancer, STDs, or heart disease. It may also include immunizations.

What is a typical first-time appointment like at Royal Oaks Medical Home and Wellness Clinics?

When you have your first appointment with Dr. Nisnisan, he will review your medical history and may ask you questions regarding your current health, including whether you’re experiencing any specific issues. He’ll also review your medications. If you don’t know your medications by memory, be sure to bring a list.

Dr. Nisnisan will complete a thorough physical examination. This might include:

  • Listening to your heart and lungs
  • Checking your reflexes
  • Feeling the alignment in your spine
  • Taking your vitals
  • Testing your strength

Dr. Nisnisan may also recommend testing or lab work. Through blood and urine tests, he can look for any health issues, like high cholesterol or kidney function. Other tests, like mammograms or colonoscopies, may be part of your preventive care plan.
