Specialties

Dr. Howard M Braver has the following 2 specialties

  • Pulmonary Disease

    A pulmonologist is a physician who specializes in the diagnosis and treatment of conditions related to the lungs and respiratory tract.
    These specialists are similar to critical care specialists in that their patients often require mechanical ventilation to assist their breathing.
    Pulmonologists diagnose and treat patients with conditions such as asthma, cystic fibrosis, asbestosis, pulmonary fibrosis, lung cancer, COPD, and emphysema. Exposure and inhalation of certain toxic substances may also warrant the services of a pulmonologist.
    Some of the tools and tests pulmonologists use to diagnose a patient are a stethoscope in order to listen for abnormal breathing sounds, chest X-rays, CT scans, blood tests, bronchoscopy, and polysomnography.

  • 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.

Dr. Braver is a wonderful doctor, but his staff ugh so rude they know how to deal with their patients, with the exception of the front desk young lady she is a sweetheart if I was Dr. Braver I would start looking for new employees especially the check up girls and a few medical assistants. Crystal rocks it love her. His office manager walks around with his pants hanging down acts like his head is in the clouds. But Dr. Braver is a great doctor, love him.

One Star

Dr, Braver office has little or no respect for his patients. Waited over 2 hours and still had an hour and a half to go. Ended up rescheduling as did many other patients. Many patients were waiting out in the hallway as there was not enough seating. Not sure if it is a lack of respect for the patients, poor management or just a plain lack of caring on their part. No explanation as why the incredibly long wait. The young lady at the desk had an attitude and obviously didn't care I asked why the long wait and she stated it is always like that. First apt went smooth will try again on the rescheduled appointment.

Worst uncourteaous staff, worst wait time

Dr Braver is a nice person but his staff is incompentent and uncourteous. They overbook appointments (probably his fault). . For example if you have an 8 AM appointment, there will be at least 16 people (all sick sitting and waiting in his cramped) waiting room for that same 8 am appointment. You don't get to see him until 10:30. His staff takes your blood pressure / vitals first in the office in front of everyone passing by, then theuy make you go back out to the lobby and wait more. Ask for a mask because you will get worse just sitting and breathing in the same air as all those sick people in the waiting room. After you see the doctor, an assistant, Kiana, will schedule appointments for you but I observed her spending alot of time making personal phone calls while the patients including me are standing right in front of her. His staff will ruin his business.
