The Internal Medicine department comprises of well- qualified, competent and experienced
consultants who have gained expertise in dealing with the diagnostic dilemmas and
treating highly complex health situations that are particularly perplexing in the
setting of general practice. Their invaluable experience has often solved medical
puzzles of varied variety and have been presented in various national and international
medical conferences. The department of medicine believes in the holistic approach
towards patients and thus a multi-disciplinary team approach is desired. Apart from
the medical team, it also includes a nursing team. A team comprising of physiotherapists
and nutritionists also play a vital role not only in patient care but in patient
education as well.
