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.

  • 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.

God forbid you mention something and even answer your own question! You will be billed for an office visit instead of a well check just because you may have said, "I didn't bring him in for this cold because I knew there was nothing that could be done about it" cha ching, they are going to bill you for that comment. Also very overly cautious, if your child has a mosquito bite, a red flag will be raised. Had to wait an hour and half just to get the flu vaccine. They had no appointments for well checks until a month out. There is no real separation between well and sick children. Rude staff. I'm changing doctors after being on a downhill ride for the last two years. Very disappointed

Compassionate Doctor

Dr Korelitz has been my doctor since 1979. He saved my life. To this day I travel from where ever I live to see him for treatments and care. I am forever grateful to him and LHH for the compassionate care I receive and the true feeling that I matter to them.

Saved my Life

Dr. Korelitz saved me 30 yrs. ago. I have Crohn's Disease, & he is the Guru on this. He works WITH you with respect; not dictate TO you. He got me into remission in Lenox Hill Hosp. & to this day I have few flare-ups all of which are easily controlled. Thank you Dr. Korelitz. I'm in Florida now, but would fly to NYC if I needed serious ministering. Never waited more than 20 minutes.
