Specialties

Dr. Alan M Sugar 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.

  • Infectious Disease

    An infectious disease specialist has specialized training in the diagnosis and treatment of contagious diseases.
    Infectious diseases, also known as contagious or transmissible diseases, are those that stem from pathogen from a host organism. These infections may spread to other carriers through physical touch, airborne inhalation, bodily fluids or contaminated foods.
    Infectious disease specialists identify whether the disease is caused by bacteria, a virus, a fungus or a parasite often through blood tests and then determine what course of treatment, if any, is necessary.

Believe in your patients

I was treated for Lyme after I had been sick a long time. The standard course of antibiotics was not enough to relieve my Lyme, so I went to Dr. Sugar for help. I tested negative but knew I still had the bacteria in me. Dr. Sugar ignored my concerns and kept saying, "Show me the proof!" He told me I probably had fibroid-myaglia. I finally (it took me 2 years) found a Dr. to help me and it took over a year of antibiotics to get rid of the bacteria. Drs. should listen to their patients more. Sometimes we know our body better than they do. LISTEN!
