Internal Medicine Overview
Department of Internal Medicine is the backbone of any hospital which takes care of admitted patients as well as patients coming into the outdoor patient department with a broader vision & expertise. Outdoor consulting chambers of all the faculty members are located in the general outdoor wing of Jaipur Manipal Hospital on the ground floor. All the chambers are well equipped with the modern clinical tools for clinical assessment of routine outdoor patients.
The Department of General Medicine deals with the prevention, diagnosis and non-surgical treatment of various diseases. It serves as the first point of contact whenever a patient visits the hospital. A general physician conducts a physical examination of the patient and then recommends necessary tests and diagnostic procedures. The results of these tests, the general physical examination and symptoms are then correlated to arrive at a final diagnosis. Depending on the final diagnosis, the general physician gives the necessary treatment (usually medication) to the patient or refers to a speciality department for further treatment. The department of general medicine at Manipal Hospitals is favoured by a multitude of people owing to the fact that is a convenient one-stop-solution. Add to this, the presence of talented specialists, modern diagnostic services, and a 24-hour pharmacy go on to make this the all-around solution that patients seek.
