WHAT IS OSTEOPATHIC INTERNAL MEDICINE?

Internal medicine, or general medicine, is the medical specialty dealing with the prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of adult diseases. Internists are skilled in the management of patients who have undifferentiated or multi-system disease processes.

Because internal medicine patients are often seriously ill or require complex investigations, internists do much of their work in hospitals. Internists often have sub-specialty interests in diseases affecting particular organs or organ systems.

GENERAL MEDICINE VS. OSTEOPATHIC INTERNAL MEDICINE?

Osteopathic medical schools emphasize training students to become primary care physicians. DOs practice a “whole person” approach to medicine. Instead of just treating you for specific symptoms or illnesses, they regard your body as an integrated whole. Osteopathic physicians focus on preventive health care.

Thiery Jacquemin Full Headshot Original
My name is Thierry Jacquemin, D.O.  I am board certified in Internal Medicine, and I divide my professional time between 2 extremes. On one hand, I work as an emergency physician in one of the busiest emergency departments in the county, where I see the worst of the worst in the human condition. On the other hand, I work in my private practice, where I pursue my true passion, the optimization of the human potential, both on a physical and psychological level. I truly enjoy the latter aspect of my professional life, since it affords me the opportunity to work with individuals who are truly motivated and passionate about reaching their full potential. Whether I am dealing with a 60 year old weekend warrior, looking to keep up with the younger guys, or a high level athlete looking to optimize his performance, I feel truly blessed to have the knowledge and expertise necessary to share this crucial information.
