Specialties

Dr. Abraham Waks has the following 2 specialties

  • 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.

  • Nephrology

    A nephrologist is a physician who is specially trained to diagnose and treat conditions affecting the kidneys or renal system.
    A nephrologist will determine through urine analysis, blood test, X-ray, sonogram, or kidney biopsy how well the kidneys are functioning and will then prescribe a special diet and exercise program, medication or dialysis - a process by which a machine filters the blood when the kidney is no longer capable of doing so.

Patient for over 17 years and very pleased with Dr. Waks and his staff

Dr. Waks is an excellent doctor! I have been a patient of Dr. Waks for over 17 years and I am the luckiest person to have found such a great doctor. Dr. Waks is a very caring and responsive doctor. I have been ill from time to time and he actually calls during evenings or weekends to check on my health status. Most recently, I was in the hospital and he stopped by to check on me and to make sure that the hospital staff were performing all tests and analysis that I needed. In addition, he referred his colleagues who specialize in the different areas of concern ant they also came by the hospital to conduct their individual evaluation for a correct diagnosis. The positive feedback that I received from the Hospital Staff regarding Dr. Waks and the two specialists that he referred to me was absolutely outstanding. I have read the negative reviews on this site and those experiences are unknown to me or any other friend or family member that are active patients of Dr. Waks. I have never had problems scheduling an appointment on the same day or obtaining a referral in a timely fashion. Thank you for reading....

Excellent Physician

Dr. Waks has been my physician for over 17 years and it's only because he is very good with his patients. He is responsive. I have been severely ill a couple of times and he calls me at home to check on me. I have received my referrals on the spot in the office or in a couple of days. The staff is very nice and helpful. I have referred my doctor to friends and family and they are very pleased with him. Lastly, appointments are very easy to make; you can make your appointment on line. I have never had an issue seeing him on the same day. I am very happy with this office.
