Specialties

Dr. Arnold E Barz has the following 2 specialties

  • 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.

  • 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.

Reviews

Showing 5 of 7

One Star

This doctor gives inaccurate information about patient condition and epxects the patient to be dumb enough not to know. Little concern for patients concerns and when confronted with a second opinion, does refute it as if the second opinon doctor does not know what he/she is talking about. Thereby leaving the patient to arrive at a mixed conclusion.
