About Dr. Eric C Zabat MD
Dr. Eric C Zabat has the following 3 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.
- Sports Medicine
A sports medicine specialist is a physician who is trained to diagnose and treat injuries and conditions caused by participation in athletic activities.
These doctors are generally employed by professional sports teams to care for the athletes who are injured. They have extensive knowledge of the types of injuries that athletes are most susceptible to, such as stress fractures, sprains, concussions, muscle cramps, ACL injuries, and shin splints.
It is the responsibility of sports medicine specialist to clear athletes to return to the playing field when they are deemed fit. These doctors also advise athletes on how to avoid injury through proper care of their bodies while training.
- Family Medicine
A family practitioner is a doctor who specializes in caring for people of all ages, at all stages of life. Rather than focusing on the treatment of one disease or patient population, family practitioners are often the doctors that people see for their everyday ailments, like cold and flu or respiratory infections, and health screenings. When necessary, family practitioners will provide referrals for conditions that require the expertise of another specialist.
The doctors may also provide physicals, inoculations, prenatal care, treat chronic diseases, like diabetes and asthma, and provide advice on disease prevention.

By Far the Best in Months!
Self-verified patient of Dr. Eric C Zabat - Posted on March 29th, 2018
Have had many orthopaedic visits in the last four months. Dr. Zabat and his staff were by far, FAR the best. They were extremely knowledgeable, personable and FOCUSED on what was needed, what treatment would be helpful and even on what I had going on in my life in the next few weeks. Really OUTSTANDING.
Self-verified patient of Dr. Eric C Zabat - Posted on April 23rd, 2014
My 15 year old had one x-ray; one MRI; 4 visits w/Dr. Zabat; 4 visits w/skeptical physical therapists; complaints of increasing pain, numbness and weakness, and Dr. Zabat stood by his diagnosis of a sprained muscle. A second opinion by a new doctor who ordered a 2nd MRI, revealed a broken rib and injured brachial phlexus, causing a severe cycle of painful nerve spasms resulting in the increased pain, numbness & weakness. Dr. Zabat did not think out of the box even as my son reported increased pain & weakness with each visit. Ruggerio's own PT practice said that even they weren't comfortable with the treatment plan as my son's pain seemed too severe for a sprained muscle. One month of proper treatment was lost.
Several visits with Dr, Zabat
