As you get older, your health should become more of a priority because your risk of illness increases. At Reliant MD Group in Leesburg, Virginia, Suman Manchireddy, MD, FACP, FHM, and the team of internal medicine specialists can provide you with personalized, quality care.

What is internal medicine?

Internal medicine is a broad specialty that encompasses many aspects of health. Internal medical care is specifically dedicated to treating adults at all stages of life, whether they’re generally healthy or dealing with some form of illness.

Reliant MD Group accepts new and returning patients for comprehensive internal medicine care. Whether you simply need an annual physical exam or ongoing, attentive care for a chronic condition, the team at Reliant MD Group listens to your needs to design an appropriate care plan for you.

When should I seek internal medicine care?

If you’re an adult and care about your health, internal medicine can benefit you at any time. With annual wellness visits, your physician can monitor many aspects of your health to give you an idea of the way your body works. They can also detect signs of health complications early, before you notice symptoms or signs.

If they diagnose you with one of the following or other conditions, they can provide you with the treatment you need:

  • Obesity
  • Hypertension
  • High cholesterol
  • Heart disease
  • Cold and flu
  • Asthma
  • Allergies
  • Diabetes
  • Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD)

If you’re concerned about changes in your body’s functions or symptoms that arise, an internal medicine specialist can evaluate you and find the underlying cause. They can also encourage you to make positive changes to your diet and lifestyle for better long-term health.

What treatments might an internal medicine specialist give me?

The internal medicine team at Reliant MD Group often recommends multiple modes of treatment at the same time in a personalized plan designed just for you. They start with conservative measures like lifestyle changes and work their way up to pharmaceuticals and procedures, if necessary.

If you have a long-term or short-term condition, the team at Reliant MD Group may ask that you come in regularly as you undergo treatment to monitor your progress. They can make adjustments to your treatment plan if something isn’t working toward your health.
