Specialties

Dr. Humberto F Pavon has the following 2 specialties

  • Nephrology

    A nephrologist is a physician who is specially trained to diagnose and treat conditions affecting the kidneys or renal system.
    A nephrologist will determine through urine analysis, blood test, X-ray, sonogram, or kidney biopsy how well the kidneys are functioning and will then prescribe a special diet and exercise program, medication or dialysis - a process by which a machine filters the blood when the kidney is no longer capable of doing so.

  • 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. Pavons nurse practitioner Ronnie is very unpleasant and unprofessional. Her disposition is very unkind. I have had many family members leave this practice because of her rudeness. It does not seem like she cares or is concerned about the patients well being. Her refusal to allow an appointment for me because of a $19 balance that I was willing to pay to collections was very disconcerting. I had to go to the emergency room to be seen because of this which caused an unnecessarily high bill. By all means Dr Pavon provides excellent care, I just wish he had different staff.
