General medicine is the branch of medicine that focuses on adult care. It refers to the diagnosis and treatment of diseases of the internal organs. A general medicine doctor may work with a patient’s heart, lungs and brain, among other organs. These doctors treat illnesses of the internal organs with methods other than surgery. A surgeon spends most of his or her time either planning for or executing surgeries — medical procedures that involve cutting into patients to repair and diagnose internal problems.
