Adult Medicine Q & A

What is adult medicine?

Adult medicine is a medical specialty that revolves around caring for men and women through all stages of adulthood. 

It encompasses the diagnosis and treatment of a wide range of conditions affecting the internal bodily organs: the liver, lungs, heart, gastrointestinal tract, urinary tract, spinal column, kidneys, brain, nerves, muscles, and joints.

Most chronic diseases and conditions affect multiple body organs and systems. Adult medicine is sometimes referred to as internal medicine, and adult medicine doctors might be called internists.

Adult medicine specialists help treat and manage a wide spectrum of conditions and problems that affect adults, such as diabetes, arthritis, high blood pressure, back pain, chest pain, and abdominal pain.

It can involve post-hospitalization care and patient education to help you live a healthier lifestyle.  

It can also address both cosmetic and functional problems from treating diabetes to wrinkle reduction, vein treatments, and laser hair removal.

Often incorporating mental health, women’s health, men’s health, substance abuse, and the treatment of common problems of the eyes, skin, ears, reproductive organs and nervous systems, adult medicine offers you the chance to develop strong doctor-patient relationships in a comfortable outpatient setting.

What is preventive medicine?

Preventive medicine is a key part of adult medicine that’s centered around reducing the risk of much more complicated and debilitating conditions from developing. 

Dr. Hubach provides a range of screenings and tests, such as blood pressure and cholesterol tests to help prevent certain complications and lower your risk of disease.

Dr. Hubach spends valuable time educating patients, teaching wellness tips, and promoting a healthy lifestyle and disease prevention.

What are vaccines?

Vaccines (vaccinations) are injections designed to protect you from various infectious diseases. Immunization refers to the process of being vaccinated and gradually becoming immune to disease over time.

Vaccines might also be called immunizations, and they’re an important part of your preventive care. Dr. Hubach can help you to decide whether you’re due for any vaccines.

Vaccines use dead or weakened versions of viruses or bacteria to prepare your body to fight an infection without exposing you to symptoms of the disease. 

The purpose is to stimulate your immune system to produce proteins known as antibodies and white blood cells called lymphocytes to fight the foreign invaders.
