Specialties

Lee Surkin has the following 3 specialties

  • Cardiovascular Disease
  • 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.

  • Sleep Medicine

    A sleep medicine specialist is specially trained in diagnosing and treating disorders involving sleep.
    Sleep disorders such as sleep apnea, restless leg syndrome and insomnia are very common and can often cause other serious health issues, such as depression, asthma, and migraines. Sleep medicine specialists often work in sleep centers where they observe a patient while sleeping and monitor brain waves, behavior, and vital signs in order to identify the causes of sleep disturbance, or an inability to sleep (insomnia).
    Sleep medicine specialists treat patients through advising on sleep hygiene, providing cognitive behavioral therapy, using light therapy, or medical sleep aides.

Outstanding physician

This physician turned my life around. I came to him suffering with an uncontrolled arrhythmia and he was able to treat is successfully and I am feeling so much better. He found out that improving my sleep (he figured out I had sleep apnea that was worsening my heart condition) along wit adjusting my medications and making lifestyle changes would help. And boy did it ever! I appreciate his efforts so much. I would recommend him to anyone

Outstanding cardiologist and sleep physician

Dr. Surkin is incredibly gifted in his all encompassing skills, ability to speak to me in simple terms and help me understand everything without feeling rushed. My health is much improved and I feel better than I did years ago. I would send family and friends to him without reservation.

Great Sleep study experience

My wife made the doc apt. Because of my snoring, she hasn't slept in years. I had my sleep study done at Carolina Sleep. Great place, clean and big comfy bed with tv, life a really nice hotel. After the study and another apt I got treatment and we are both sleeping. I never realized how dangerous snoring actually was.
