  • 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.

  • Rheumatology

    A rheumatologist is a physician who has received extensive training in diagnosing and treating rheumatic conditions. Rheumatic conditions involve the joints, soft tissues, autoimmune system, vascular system, and connective tissues.
    Some of the conditions that rheumatologists treat are rheumatoid arthritis, ankylosing spondylitis, gout, sarcoidosis, vasculitis, and lupus. These are all conditions that involve a lot of pain and make mobility difficult.

Valerie Gilbreaths' fortune

This Man literally saved my life. I was at deaths door and Dr Jaffe Took me under his wing and never let me down. He worked so hard and took such interest and care with me that I will forever be grateful to him. It is because of his greatness, combined with the greatness of Dr Kenneth Prager and God that I'm here today to give thanks. I've cried on their shoulders many a day. I was so sick that it was incredible. More that I can put into words amd I made it through. I was blessed to be under their care in 1997 - 2003 and I'm still around and doing great (better than Great). I didn't have much money or the best insurance and it didn't matter. They wanted to hepl me live. That they did and I'll forever be grateful. My children, my grandchildren and my mother will be forever grateful. They were the best doctors I could have ever had care for me. May God Bless you
