Dept Of General Medicine


Internal medicine is the foundation on which all the medical super specialties are built. It is the first point of contact for any patient who seeks a specialist opinion as the internist has a holistic approach towards a patient, analyses various problems and then if required refers to the concerned super specialist whose highly specialized skills are used for the patients’ benefit.

The Department of Internal Medicine at Makkar Multi-Speciality Hospital is a thread which links with all the departments and specialties in the hospital. It is managed by an excellent and competent group of doctors including consultants, senior residents, medical officers and Post Graduate trainees.
