Specialties

Dr. Lawrence R Poliner has the following 2 specialties

  • Cardiology

    Cardiologists are doctors who specialize in the diagnosis, prevention and treatment of conditions related to the heart and blood vessels.
    A patient may be referred to a cardiologist if he experiences symptoms like chest pains, shortness of breath, dizziness, or high blood pressure. The physician will then evaluate your symptoms, take your health and family history and your weight. The cardiologist may order additional diagnostic tests, such as an echocardiogram, X-ray or blood tests. If necessary, the cardiologist may also call for a cardiac catheterization - a procedure in which a small tube is inserted into or near the heart that can take pictures of the heart's activity, or relieve blockage.
    Once determining whether there is a heart condition, a cardiologist will treat a patient through cholesterol management, cardiac rehabilitation, and fitness. If surgical intervention is required, like open-heart surgery, a cardiologist will make that determination, but a cardiothoracic surgeon will perform the procedure.

  • Nuclear Cardiology

    Rooted in general cardiology, nuclear cardiologists specialize in a specific, non-invasive imaging technique that's used to diagnose heart disease, evaluate how well your heart is pumping blood, or determine the size and place of a past heart attack.
    They’re able to take pictures and video of your heart during stress tests, and in resting states, that allow them to diagnose patients as well as recommended treatments, medication and additional testing that might be needed. They often work closely with radiologists to assess the damage of a past heart attack or the patient's risk for future heart attacks.

My father was referred to Dr Poliner by his primary physician after having some shortness of breath with walking short distances. He saw Dr Poliner on the following Monday, and he had a treadmill stress test done in his office. The results were very abnormal (severe ST depression in at least 3 leads). Dr Poliner and his staff reassured him that waiting for 10 days to have a cardiac cath done was standard procedure since he wasn't "critical". I told my Dad to call the office back to ask for a sooner date, but the office claimed they were booked up since the doctor was going out of town for the weekend. On Thursday my father was having severe shortness of breath and chest pain. He was brought to the facility that I work for, and it turns out he was "critical"! He had 95-99% stenosis in his circumflex and LAD. He ended up having bypass surgery that Friday. I would never trust Dr Poliner or his staff. If my father would've waited for them to do the procedure he would have died. If you're still curious about Dr Poliner, then do a google search for his controversy with Presbyterian Hospital.
