Specialties

Dr. Alan J Diamond has the following 2 specialties

  • Gastroenterology

    A gastroenterologist is a specialist in diagnosis and treatment of conditions involving the digestive/gastrointestinal (GI) tract. These doctors are experts on how food moves through the digestive system and is chemically broken down, with nutrients being absorbed and waste excreted. You might see this kind of doctor if you are experiencing any number of stomach issues, some of which might be severe diarrhea, irritable bowel syndrome, hemorrhoids, ulcers, acid reflux, Crohn's disease and more.

  • 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.

Personalized care beyond belief

Dr. Alan Diamond recently diagnosed a major problem I've had for almost a year. He called me and left a message with a detailed explanation of the diagnosis and treatment plan for my problem. He called early the next day to be certain I received and understood his message. Three weeks later he called me at my home in the evening to answer a concern about my problem. No other doctors have called me at after hours since I had my children. AMAZING good old-fashioned quality care and concern for my health. Unbelievable in this day and age.
