Whats the difference between a family doctor and internal medicine doctor?

Internal Medicine doctors (also called "internists") spend 3 or more years of intensive training learning how to diagnose and treat non-surgical medical problems in teens and adults through old age. They can treat any problems, simple or complex, in fact, other doctors often refer their patients to internists to solve puzzling medical problems. Internists are also very good at treating multiple medical problems that may come up at the same time and are often tied together.

Family doctors spend their 3 years of training learning about medical problems of children, adults, OB/Gyn, surgery and other specialties. They can treat families from babies to adults, but their training is not as intensive in one area as an Internal Medicine doctor.

How much does a visit to a cardiologist cost?

If you do not have any insurance, and are paying out-of-pocket, expect the fee to see a private cardiologist to be anywhere from $200 - $400. This will include the office visit, physical exam and likely an electrocardiogram (EKG).

However depending on your reason for needing to see a cardiologist, you may need an ultrasound of your heart (echocardiogram to check the valves and muscle function) or a stress test (to check for blocked arteries of the heart). These tests are expensive without insurance (echocardiogram about $300, and stress test $500-$1000).

If your primary doctor thinks you need to see a cardiologist, it's worth paying the $200-$400 for the office visit. Then if the cardiologist thinks you need additional testing, there are many alternatives:

If you need an echocardiogram or stress test, these tests are often available at government hospitals or university based hospitals for much cheaper. Yes the service at a government hospital is neither convenient nor attentive, but you get what you need at an affordable price.

Can your primary care physician be a cardiologist?

Some specialists do primary care. Usually they take the role for people whose main concern is in their area of interest. Some, especially when first starting out, will do primary care to supplement their practice and plan to phase it out as they get busier in their specialty.

As a personal perspective I often find it interesting that they would scoff at the idea of a primary care doc doing their job but yet insist that they can do the primary care just as well as people who specialize in that. If the doctor really was interested in primary care and wanted to do it he would have been a primary care physican. My personal advice it to get your primary care from a doc who finds it interesting and actually wants to do it.

Well! This is a interesting question. The correct term is "Professional Gamer" and the main qualification is being good at the game you play. Being able to devote 10-16 hours to playing that game and being sponsored by a company or team.

What are troponin tests are used to assess?

There are 2 types of Troponin (Troponin T and Troponin I). These are proteins found in the heart muscle specifically. The levels go up if the heart muscle is injured.
Both are used to diagnose Acute Myocardial Infarction (MI or Heart attack). More cardiac-specific than CPK or CK-MB. In other words, better test of heart injury than CPK or CK-MB.
The level increases rapidly 3-12 h after MI, peaks at 24 h, and may stay elevated for several days (Troponin I 5-7 d, Troponin T up to 14 d). Serial testing recommended to rule in or rule out an MI after the onset of Chest pain.

What type of thermometer does a doctor use?

There are a few different types of thermometers and a few different ways body temperature can be taken: - A tympanic thermometer measures the body temperature by taking a reading from the tympanic membrane in the ear. - The old mercury thermometers aren't used anymore, the risk of them breaking is too high. - Digital thermometers are about 15cm long and can measure oral, axillary or rectal temperature. They have plastic coverings to go over the top.

Even though it is rarely used (except in paediatrics), for obvious reasons, the rectal method of measuring body temperature is the most accurate.
