Specialties

Dr. Benjamin D Margolis has the following 4 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.

  • Sleep Medicine

    A sleep medicine specialist is specially trained in diagnosing and treating disorders involving sleep.
    Sleep disorders such as sleep apnea, restless leg syndrome and insomnia are very common and can often cause other serious health issues, such as depression, asthma, and migraines. Sleep medicine specialists often work in sleep centers where they observe a patient while sleeping and monitor brain waves, behavior, and vital signs in order to identify the causes of sleep disturbance, or an inability to sleep (insomnia).
    Sleep medicine specialists treat patients through advising on sleep hygiene, providing cognitive behavioral therapy, using light therapy, or medical sleep aides.

  • 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.

  • Pulmonary Disease

    A pulmonologist is a physician who specializes in the diagnosis and treatment of conditions related to the lungs and respiratory tract.
    These specialists are similar to critical care specialists in that their patients often require mechanical ventilation to assist their breathing.
    Pulmonologists diagnose and treat patients with conditions such as asthma, cystic fibrosis, asbestosis, pulmonary fibrosis, lung cancer, COPD, and emphysema. Exposure and inhalation of certain toxic substances may also warrant the services of a pulmonologist.
    Some of the tools and tests pulmonologists use to diagnose a patient are a stethoscope in order to listen for abnormal breathing sounds, chest X-rays, CT scans, blood tests, bronchoscopy, and polysomnography.

A dangerous man

Dr. Margolis overmedicated my father resulting in my father's illness and death. He also made inappropriate comments to cover up his error. I realize that doctors make errors like every one else, but if he had been an honest man, my father would be alive now. One of the nurses at the hospital told me that this was not the first time Dr. Margolis had overmedicated a patient. Beware of this man!

Very talented and extremely smart. You will be in excellent hands.

Dr. Margolis saved my mother's life on multiple occasions. She had moderately severe emphysema from smoking. When she was found to have a lung mass at the age of 81, Dr. Margolis gave her very tender care and diagnosed her with lung cancer. She wanted surgery and he was there by her side every step of the way. She died at age 97 and he made sure with pulmonary rehab that she would be able to hopefully survive the surgery. His skill and intelligence and knowledge are outstanding. You will know you are in the right hands after you see him. I sometimes hear people say they do not prefer a doctor because of his/ her demeanor. Think again. .... Outstanding physicians are serious and will tell you like it is. Dr Ben. As we called him is one of the best!!!
