- 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.
- Sports Medicine
A sports medicine specialist is a physician who is trained to diagnose and treat injuries and conditions caused by participation in athletic activities.
These doctors are generally employed by professional sports teams to care for the athletes who are injured. They have extensive knowledge of the types of injuries that athletes are most susceptible to, such as stress fractures, sprains, concussions, muscle cramps, ACL injuries, and shin splints.
It is the responsibility of sports medicine specialist to clear athletes to return to the playing field when they are deemed fit. These doctors also advise athletes on how to avoid injury through proper care of their bodies while training.

I just love Dr. Brucker. He was my rheumatologist while still with Montefiore in the Bronx, and his fresh outlook and in-depth knowledge in the field of Rheumatology was refreshing and promising. I felt very well taken care of while I was his patient. He was light-hearted, understanding, patient and very easy to discuss concerns with. I much appreciated how he made his email address available to his patients so that they were able to reach him in order to discuss issues. The meds he started me on were new to the market at the time, and within less than four years I was in complete remission with my disease, and four years later I still am. Highly recommend him.
Dr. Brucker represents the gold standard when it comes to bedside manner. He is a careful listener and asks detailed questions. He also has a delightful sense of humor that does not at all impede his professionalism, but rather sets his patients at ease. He put together a clear treatment plan for me which feels like it addresses the problems I sought him for in the first place. I highly recommend him.
