Specialties

Dr. Joel W Abramowitz has the following 4 specialties

  • Hematology

    A hematology specialist is an expert in disorders of the blood, the blood forming organs and bone marrow. These doctors diagnose, treat and work to prevent diseases that affect the production of blood and its components, as well as the ability of the blood to perform its many functions, such as coagulation and carrying oxygen to the lungs and tissue.
    Hematologists diagnose and treat blood disorders, such as anemia, hemophilia, leukemia, sickle cell anemia, deep vein thrombosis and pulmonary embolism.
    Depending on the condition, hematology specialists may treat a patient with a blood transfusion, stem cell transplantation, bone marrow transplant, radiotherapy, anticoagulation therapy or medication.

  • Medical Oncology

    Think of an oncologist as your main physician for cancer care. After being diagnosed, you’ll meet regularly with an oncologist to explore and manage your treatment options, as well as monitor your condition throughout the process. Medical oncologists are extremely knowledgeable in various types of cancer treatment and can recommend the right method for the type and stage of cancer you’re facing.
    They may also refer you to additional specialists throughout your care, but they will always be your home base for questions and support. It’s also worth mentioning that medical oncologists deal mostly with solid tumors while hematologists specialize in cancers that involve blood disorders, such as leukemia.

  • 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.

Best Doctor Hands Down

Dr. A. as I call him, has been my doctor for seven years. There was someone that reviewed him as money hungry and test happy physician... Excuse me? I can emphatically say that Dr. Abramowitz is in NO WAY guilty of this. He is very conservative with tests and scans. He is very compassionate and in times where he had to determine a direction for me, he ALWAYS proved right. Furthermore, when I went to have my scans done at Excel the tech people there told (without me asking) that he was REALLY GOOD and he did not order too many tests and scans as others do. Dr. A. saved my life and is still saving my life. He is up on the newest and latest technologies. He has a wonderful manner about him and years of experience. He truly loves his patients. I consider Dr. A . a gift from God.

Money hungry doctor

I was recommended an unnecessary procedure by Abramowitz. I think he makes money off of the procedures and chemotherapy he gives his patients and therefore I believe he recommends his patients to obtain unnecessary care. You must be a horrible person to try to make money off a sick and dying person.
