Specialties

Dr. Dwight L Makoff 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.

  • 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.

I am blessed to have Dr. Dwight Makoff in my life (he has saved it!)

Dr. Makoff is a very thorough doctor, not only in his specialty, but refers me to other doctors that he thinks I might benefit from their services. Dr. Makoff has been my physician for over 25 years and I have total confidence in him....I can't imagine going to anyone else.

I guess I have a pet peeve in regard to waiting when I have a specific appointment time. I do have high blood pressure and I start to get upset while waiting in the waiting room for more than 1o or 15 minutes, which in turn makes my pressure rise. Also the parking situation at Cedars is horribly expensive so paying extra while waiting is another issue! Dr. Makoff is an excellent doctor and that is the reason I stick with him.

best kidney doctor in la

I was referred to him in 1999 from diabetic doctor. Kidneys had been slowly failing for 9 years. Best kidney doctor in town, saw me through 2 transplants. He only works part time now, huge bummer. The first time I walked in he caught just by looking at me that my parathyroid was overactive. Prior nephrologist missed that even though I had 3 broken feet and creatinine had been high for about 10 years.
