Specialties

Dr. Donald E Craven 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.

  • 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.

Nice guy but..

Nice doctor SEEMS very caring at first BUT problems... not open minded and his hospital affiliation is an issue Lahey clinic is not the lahey cliinc its so well known for. first impression was good BUT then misdiagnosed and regardless of findings not told about I was denied treatment. I would never go back there ,they all lie to cover up mistakes and still dont give you help. You could become a lab rat like me. Ended up having private testing that was positive.Something weird is going on there under investagation from what I saw on tv
