- Geriatric Medicine
A geriatric specialist is a physician who treats the elderly population and the conditions that most commonly affect them. These doctors have special training in the effects of aging on the body and mind of a patient.
Geriatric specialists treat common ailments faced by senior citizens, such as frailty, incontinence, memory problems, arthritis, senility, decreased functioning and more.
In addition, geriatric specialists keep abreast of the different medications that an elderly person is prescribed to treat their more complex health issues in order to decrease adverse side effects and avoid dangerous drug interactions.
- 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.

Dr. Jalowsky is not respectful, of the time of patients -- waits are often more than an hour. He does not listen to the patient and changes medications prescribed by specialists in specific fields of medicine. He has repeatedly ordered blood tests that have given the same results. It is time to change doctors.
If you take important medications, do NOT go to this clinic. First, Dr Ruben increased a medication by 50 MCG for no reason and didn't tell me. Then when I saw Jawolsky because my Ruben was sick, he okayed a refilled one if my thyroid meds in FIVE TIMES STRONGER than I normally took. Since it is a small white pill, I didn't notice. THREE MORE REFILLS went in, one by Ruben at this clinic. He didn't notice the mix up with my other thyroid med OR this one. SO, SEVEN MONTHS of the wrong dosage and wondering why I feel so bad has left me angry. I already left the clinicclinic (to get an accurate diagnosis of a paralyzed diaphram) when my new SMART WONDERFUL DOCTOR, found the problem. Was it Jawolsky? His substandard office worker? Who knows? What I DO KNOW is IF they do this with HEART MEDICINE, someone could DIE!!!
My first visit, he was rude and threatening. No humor. Said my being a patient depended on me not coming in with any more insurance forms. 10 minute exam on first visit. I requested a physical for insurance purposes. My last doctor went on sabbatical and never returned so I had an insurance form needing a doctors signature. I quit him before it cost me more time, pain and after reading these bad reviews that seemed right on.
