- 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.
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.

Dr. Pitone has a wonderful peaceful presences.I have struggle with finding a blood pressure medication for almost a year. The doctor I was seeing and I both were frustrated because every one gave me side effects. When I went to see Dr. Pitone he was able to show and explain to me what options I had and worked a plan out with me with these options. He is one of the most kindest doctor I have every came across in years. When he explains something I was able to understand what he was speaking about and also knew he knows exactly about all the medication he described to me and the side effects. I have been fortunate to have met him. I feel safe and sure he will help my condition .
I had the pleasure of meeting Dr. Pitone for an office visit. I cannot say enough about this doctor. He is the best doctor I have ever been to as a patient. He took an hour with me and my husband explaining and answering all our concerns We were not rushed in any way, and his office staff were very nice. I would highly recommend this doctor even if you need to wait to get an appointment or travel to another city...
Dr. Pitone has an excellent bedside manner and takes the time to explain what is going on. I left my appointments with a better understanding of my condition, the causes and effects, and how to improve things than I've had with any other physician. He also takes the time to explain how the medications work, what the results of taking the medication should be, and what possible side effects to expect. And he does all of this without using all of the clinical jargon that most specialists like to throw at you. Dr. Pitone is the third nephrologist I've seen and the best by a very wide margin. I highly recommend him if you need to see a Nephrologist/Hypertension specialist.
