Specialties

Dr. Edward A Mena has the following 2 specialties

  • Hepatology

    A hepatologist is a physician who specializes in the diagnosis and treatment of diseases of the liver, gall bladder, pancreas and biliary tree - the path through which bile that is secreted by the liver travels to the duodenum. These organs are responsible for many essential bodily functions, such as production of hormones and enzymes, filtering the blood, detoxifying chemicals, metabolizing drugs, and digesting and processing food.
    Common disorders that are treated by hepatologists are cirrhosis of the liver, gallstones, pancreatitis and hepatitis.

  • 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.

Amazing Doctor and kind person!

At age 60 I was diagnosed with Hep C. There. is no doubt in my mind that I have never felt sicker in my entire life, and I honestly thought I would never again get out of bed and would soon die. I was referred to Dr. Mena and everything changed. I had hope and I had a brilliant Physician who built up not only my health but also my spirits. He helped me fight....and we WON! I would send people to Dr. Mena without hesitation. I have had some amazing years thanks to him.

Poor Treatment

I discovered an arrogant attitude that could really care lees about you as an individual, but rather sees you a a "piece of flesh" that should respond to the drug regime in the prescribed fashion as published by whichever pharma company with which he's working. Dr Mena did not listen to me and my "real" complaints even though they were reiterated a number of times. I honestly wonder if he's capable of analytical thought as opposed to just following drug company instruction. DO yourself a favor before you get into trouble; go elsewhere.
