Specialties

Dr. Ira D Shocket has the following 2 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.

  • 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. You might see this kind of doctor if you are experiencing any number of stomach issues, some of which might be severe diarrhea, irritable bowel syndrome, hemorrhoids, ulcers, acid reflux, Crohn's disease and more.

Elitist doctor

I was referred to this doctor for an EGD. I chose another doctor because I did not like his elitist attitude. He gloated about his wealthy high profile patients. Medicine is medicine status is irrelevant .

Five Stars

One of the finest doctors I have ever met. He listened, gave a thoughtful explanation for my symptoms, and was readily available for follow-up. I have sent several family members to see him as a result of our initial meeting.

Analyst

I found Dr. Shocket after a truly awful experience with three other doctors who failed to diagnose my symptoms and do a colonoscopy even though I was in the hospital unable to eat or drink and had to have a pic line. I spend over 50 weeks in the hospital, finally I was referred to Dr. Shocket by two friends and he has got me back in the world of the living. He has a great staff and I just like all of them, his infectious optimisum creates a positive atmoshere for all. He can be firm, direct, polite, and funny --he gets his point across without making the patient feel like a problem. I don't know how he does it. Good wishes to all the staff and doctors and to Dr. Shocket, who has everyone call him David, but he will always be Dr. Shocket to me.

He is the BEST!

Dr. Shocket listens, he hears, he responds with facts plus humor, sympathy and confidence. I truly bless the day I found him and continue to commute to see him from my new home in New Mexico. He is the best!
