Dr. Jorge L Carreras has the following 2 specialties
- Family Medicine
A family practitioner is a doctor who specializes in caring for people of all ages, at all stages of life. Rather than focusing on the treatment of one disease or patient population, family practitioners are often the doctors that people see for their everyday ailments, like cold and flu or respiratory infections, and health screenings. When necessary, family practitioners will provide referrals for conditions that require the expertise of another specialist.
The doctors may also provide physicals, inoculations, prenatal care, treat chronic diseases, like diabetes and asthma, and provide advice on disease prevention.
- Emergency Medicine
An emergency physician is a doctor who is an expert in handling conditions of an urgent and extremely dangerous nature. These specialists work in the emergency room (ER) departments of hospitals where they oversee cases involving cardiac distress, trauma, fractures, lacerations and other acute conditions.
Emergency physicians are specially trained to make urgent life-saving decisions to treat patients during an emergency medical crisis. These doctors diagnose and stabilize patients before they are either well enough to be discharged, or transferred to the appropriate department for long-term care.

I can't say how much I am impressed by the care I received from this emergency room doctor in the little town of Sylva, NC. As far as I can determine, he was juggling two serious cases in the ER that night - an elderly man who had suffered a stroke, and me - with a collapsed lung. He may have had more to deal with as well. My only prior experience in an emergency room was 5 months before at the same hospital when I was diagnosed with pneumonia. At that time, the Dr. on duty made it clear during my treatment that he didn't know how to disconnect me from the monitoring equipment because "That's the nurse's job." That dr. let me know that he had other important things to do and I was only one of many who needed his attention, so I should be grateful for whatever attention he could spare.I feel that Dr. was competent in every way, and dedicated within the confines of his profession and training. But there were obvious limits to his care-taking. Maintaining his status ultimately and sadly trumped patient care. That attitude comes naturally to doctors, which is why Dr. Carerras is so extraordinary.I am convinced that Dr. Carreras is an extraordinary and noble man. He not only handled the monitoring equipment with competence, dispatch and without complaint, but he re-made the linens on my gurney, and personally wheeled me back and forth between radiology and the ER at least twice - at break-neck speed, I might add. His only concern was for his patients - he did what was necessary with no regard for status, or who's job it was to do what. This is a noble man - so very rare. I cannot thank him enough for his dedication and care. I hope he reads this someday.
