Specialties

Dr. Benjamin J Freda 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.

Clerks should not determine who can see a doctor

Calling Dr. Freda for an appointment is most difficult. He medical clerks will take it upon themselves to determine how serious the problem is, they are not doctors not the patient, who know the problem[s] best. While I find Dr. Freda to be in the top 5% of Doctors in the Western Mass area, his office clerks will put you off or refuse to make appointments at their whim. That is a medical decision not a clerical.
