Specialties

Dr. David C Redfield has the following 2 specialties

  • 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.

  • 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.

Unprofessional & Rude

I was appalled at the arrogance and lack of professionalism displayed by Dr. Redfield. He rounds early(5-6am) on his patients in the hospital so that he doesn't have to communicate with family members of the patient. When he was visualized in the hospital he was politely asked if he would speak to the family member of a very ill patient and he threw up his hands and said " I don't have time for that ". It is this arrogance that gives credible and kind physicians a bad name. His unwillingness to speak to family members is bad enough but misdiagnosing a patient and not owning up to it to the patient or family is what is truly scary.
