General Medicine

In the clinic we have trained doctors with extensive experience in general medicine, in the clinical field, with a multidisciplinary and polyvalent perspective. We always work thinking of the patient as a whole, as we aim to understand the reason that brought them to the clinic and take them through to full treatment.

Our aim is the correct diagnosis and treatment of the disease, referring the patient to the most appropriate health care and at the most appropriate time, taking into account their clinical situation.


The responsible physician proceeds with a comprehensive approach to the case (requesting, where appropriate, a multidisciplinary line of action with the support of other specialties) and guides the clinical history, evolution, examination and treatments carried out, coordinating situations in which other medical specialties are involved in a treatment regimen. Their generalist training and vast experience in hospitals, emergency departments, intensive and intermediate care units (including stroke units), allows the professional to take a holistic approach to the patient’s problems, drawing up a comprehensive diagnostic and therapeutic plan. We deal with difficult diagnostic situations and patients with multiple pathologies and/or with eminently systemic diseases (involving more than one organ or organ system).

We’re here to help you. Do not hesitate to contact us with any questions or to make your general medicine appointment in the form below. We are in Portimão, Praia da Rocha.

We issue any type of medical certificate, whether for a driving licence, illness or for professional purposes.

Internal Medicine

Internal medicine is the medical specialty dedicated to the long-term health monitoring of individuals of all age groups.
Doctors in this specialty have a close relationship and detailed knowledge of the health of the people they assist, and thus play a fundamental role in health promotion and disease prevention.

At DentalArt Internal Medicine is mainly dedicated to the health of adults and is exercised by doctors with specific training which covers, in a generic way, all specialty areas, thus allowing the recognition and treatment or orientation of each case in the most appropriate way.

Internal Medicine is one of the specialties responsible for primary health care.

It is the correct speciality for:

Regular health monitoring;
Carry out periodic general health assessments;
Recourse in common illness situations;
Apply for medical assessment and certification for leisure sports;
Advise on preventive care, health surveillance and examinations to be carried out;
Family planning advice;
Advise and decide on the need to refer to doctors of other specialties.

Trends in General Medicine

Data Science e Predictive Analytics

Working with a patient with a chronic illness can generate a wealth of information. However, discovering and compressing all the available data into something actionable can be a challenge.

Improvements in data science and predictive analytics, however, have made it possible for professionals to seek deeper insights.

A doctor can, for example, feed information collected from ancestry and family histories into AI-based systems. In this way, a statistically based profile can be created and problems can be diagnosed more quickly.

Rich data can be obtained from sources about the surrounding environment, allowing clinicians to identify and address problems endemic to regions, families, businesses and other population groups.

More partnerships and new players

Health organisations have sought acquisitions or even unifications with other institutions to improve their own performance and even their financial situation.

The 2019 Global Healthcare Outlook report made it clear that this is aglobal trend. In the United States, for example, mergers are occurring between health insurance companies around the world and pharmacy chains. From France to Singapore, different industry groups are also making investments to expand their businesses.

In addition, large companies that previously did not have their eye on the healthcare sector have started to realise that the area is full of good opportunities. An example of this is Philips, which has developed an intelligent solution that collects data related to diseases. From that, it delivers 24-hour monitoring to hospitals. Other novelties should soon appear on the market.


Robotics engineers develop medical assistants, rehabilitation suits and even surgical units that can perform life-saving procedures. These machines can perform minimally invasive procedures, which decrease pain and recovery time for patients. Johnson & Johnson in collaboration with Alphabet, is also expected to enter the market this year with its own surgical robot that can perform lung biopsies, one of the biggest advances in the medium.

Robots are also designed to be able to perform repetitive and monotonous tasks, so that human staff have more energy to deal with issues that require decision-making skills, creativity and, above all, care and empathy. One day, blood-drawing robots may relieve nurses of this heavy exercise, and may even perform lab tests without human intervention.

Technological invasion

Another trend is, of course, the arrival of technologies in the sector. After all, we are living in the era of digital transformation, which has as one of its main pillars the insertion of technologies in the most different processes.

These changes have reached every imaginable area, including the healthcare sector. To give you an idea, according to the Healthcare 2030 report by consultancy KPMG, novelties such as artificial intelligence should be used in 90% of US hospitals by 2025.

According to the document, the sector must make significant investments in solutions such as genetic tools, risk calculators, rare disease detection algorithms, machine learning and predictive analysis, among others. The idea is that these novelties will bring several benefits to the sector, such as easier management, more security for patients and also a paradigm shift: making medical assistance leave the focus on disease treatment and also embrace prevention and cure.


In early April 2020, the Federal Council of Medicine (CFM) recognised, on an exceptional basis, telemedicine in the country as an accepted practice for the duration of the emergency and pandemic situation.

Telemedicine is the practice of medicine at a distance, in which the doctor uses video tools through applications that facilitate communication with the patient.
