Dr. Edward J Kryshak has the following 2 specialties
- Endocrinology, Diabetes and Metabolism
An endocrinologist is a physician with extensive training in understanding, diagnosing and treating conditions related to the endocrine system. The endocrine system regulates the balance of hormones.
Conditions of the endocrine system involve an over-abundance, or deficiency of a certain hormone. While there is a range when it comes to the amount of a hormone that is deemed normal in a human, these specialists determine whether a person's amount of hormone is indicative of a health concern. Two conditions this specialist might treat are diabetes and obesity.
- 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.<br>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.ttcqeayetrwczwezdueawsrsbdyr

I was diagnosed with papillary thyroid carcinoma while under the care of Dr. Kryshak. He wanted to be very aggressive in his approach even though current literature no longer supports this. I expressed my concern and in doing so, his office contacted me to tell me that Dr. Kryshak would no longer treat me and that I would need to find a new physician. Given the nature of this diagnosis and the treatment, I was hoping he would explain to me why his approach was best, not just demand it. As a medical student, I did a lot research on the topic and found some disagreement on appropriate treatment. I even contacted a physician that argued we are inappropriately treating it too aggressively. There is a researcher/physician in Japan who has been observing patients with PTC and has concluded observation can be a safe approach. I have also contacted a physician from the Kettering Sloan Institute that is developing a study to observe patients diagnosed with PTC; I was told I was a good candidate for observation. I am convinced Dr. Kryshak is out of date with his treatment and his response to me was not only unprofessional but unethical. Guidelines have changed to reflect new data and this is why it is imperative that physicians keep up to date. This doctor wanted to perform a thyroidectomy, remove lymph nodes, and us radioactive iodine. In the future, this may be the only option for me, but as a 32 year old male, I want to be certain this is the right treatment. Even though the doctor doesn'tâ think so, this is a life changing procedure and one that I am no willing to gamble with. PTC is a very slow growing cancer and there is no reason an individual can't wait to make sure they are making the right decision.
