Specialties

Dr. Joel D Pomerantz has the following 2 specialties

  • Geriatric Medicine

    A geriatric specialist is a physician who treats the elderly population and the conditions that most commonly affect them. These doctors have special training in the effects of aging on the body and mind of a patient.
    Geriatric specialists treat common ailments faced by senior citizens, such as frailty, incontinence, memory problems, arthritis, senility, decreased functioning and more.
    In addition, geriatric specialists keep abreast of the different medications that an elderly person is prescribed to treat their more complex health issues in order to decrease adverse side effects and avoid dangerous drug interactions.

  • 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.

Energetic, informed, respectful, empathetic and knowledgeable. My only negative would be that he sometimes takes telephone calls during time with me. Otherwise he is a really great guy who is consistently willing to be collaborative in responding to my medical needs and wants.

Meets my neds pretty well!

I don't like being in the patient role. Dr. Pomerantz is good about respecting my desire to make choices for myself. He is a good consultant, but does not push me to do things I am reluctant to do. He comes across consistently as friendly and caring. Office staff are sweeties, but always seem a bit overwhelmed by all there is to do. My only complaint would be that Dr. Pomerantz sometimes takes phone calls while seeing me, which I dislike, even though he probably sees this as unavoidable given how busy he is.

Excellent Doc!

Dr. Pomerantz may not have the fanciest office in the world, but he is kind and compassionate. His staff responds to requests promptly and professionally, and the office wait time for my 2 visits so far has been minimal. Dr. P came recommended to me by other physicians whom I work with and he has met my high expectations. He is now my GP and and I am completely satified with his care, few and far between are doctors that I am impressed with, he is one of those great docs that are a rare find.
