Specialties

Dr. James C Wasserman has the following 2 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.

  • 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.

Very impressed with this doctor. I was sent to see him by my oncologist due to very low potassium levels. His throughness in testing was great, and put his finger right on my problem. For the time, I am on meds to help control the situation until I can see the surgeon. He follows up after each blood work, even calls me personally vs his secretary calling. (He has even called twice in one day.) I am very happy with him and would reccommend him to anyone. My background is having been an EMT for seventeen years, so I have above average medical experience. Believe me, if he were not worthy of a good review, I would say that too.
