Specialties

Dr. Abdul K Garuba has the following 2 specialties

  • Critical Care Medicine

    Also sometimes referred to as intensivists, critical care specialists are physicians with specialized training in the diagnosis and management of life-threatening conditions. Some of these conditions affect vital organs like the heart and lungs, those that make breathing difficult or impossible, and those that affect entire organ systems, like the renal system.
    Critical care specialists are typically found in a hospital's intensive care unit where they monitor patients with life-threatening conditions and make determinations as to the best course of treatment.

  • Internal Medicine

    An internist is a physician who focuses on the diagnosis and treatment of conditions that affect the adult population—both acute and chronic.
    These doctors are often who adults see as their primary physicians because they treat a broad range of illnesses that do not require surgical or specialist interventions. They also work to help a patient maintain optimal health in order to prevent the onset of disease.
    In addition to treating the common cold and flu, internists also treat chronic diseases like diabetes and heart disease.

Dangerously incompetent

Dr Garuba changed my blood pressure medicine and when I went back to tell him the medicine he gave me wasn't working he got angry. He was more concerned that I went back to my original medicine when my blood pressure wouldn't come down than the fact that my blood pressure had gotten to 158/102. My blood pressure normally runs no higher than 130/80. He got mad because he said my blood pressure wasn't critical until my top number breaks above 160 and that my normal blood pressure should be 150/90. Dr. Garuba is dangerously incompetent. The office never answered the phone and never returned my call even with a message about my blood pressure continuing to go up. Do not go to this Dr.

That is not to mention that the Good Doctor told me I had a heart murmur that later turned out to be a FALSE alarm! How are they still in the medical business??
