The doctors working at the General Internal Medicine Centre are experienced NEMC professionals and have extensive practical experience.

In the internal medicine department, we treat patients with appointments as well as emergency cases. There are 41 beds with an internal medicine profile, of which 16 are intensive care beds. Over 85% are emergency patients. A large number of the patients have unclear diagnoses, which we try to resolve, using all of the high-tech means at the hospital’s disposal and the NEMC’s specialists. The treatment takes place pursuant to international guidelines. All of our internists are highly experienced and constantly supplementing their knowledge base in Estonia and abroad.

The department treats patients whose diagnoses vary greatly: hypertension, heart failure, tumours and post-treatment complications, blood clots, poisoning, blood diseases, diseases of the respiratory system and urinary tract.

All of our doctors also see patients at the polyclinic. Patients who are given referrals to outpatient appointments include ones with venous thrombosis who need additional diagnosis as to the causes of the condition and advice on the duration and resolution of the problem and further secondary preventive treatment. We also provide pre- and post-operative consultation for patients with a high risk of thrombosis (prevention of recurrence). We provide consultation and monitor patients who have received an oncological diagnosis and who need anticoagulant treatment. The thrombosis-specialized nurse will provide independent lifestyle counselling on patients and also in matters pertaining to compression socks and anticoagulant treatment.
