Specialties

Dr. Lydia Rabinowich has the following 3 specialties

  • 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.

  • Neurology

    A neurologist is a physician who diagnoses and treats disorders of the nervous system which is comprised of the brain, spinal cord and nerves. These doctors do not perform surgery, but refer patients to neurological surgeons when they determine that surgical intervention is necessary.
    Some of the conditions that neurologists diagnose and treat are epilepsy, aneurysms, hydrocephalus, Parkinson's disease, multiple sclerosis, stroke, spinal disc herniation, and spinal disease.
    In addition to using diagnostic tests like MRI, CT scans, EEG and EMG, neurologists also employ neurological testing to gauge muscle strength and movement, balance, reflexes, sensation, memory, speech, and other cognitive abilities.

  • Psychiatry

    A psychiatrist is a doctor with specific training in the diagnosis and treatment of mental illness.
    He or she can not only provide the counseling necessary to both diagnose and treat a patient, but can also prescribe medication when needed. In some cases, a psychiatrist will only provide the medication and the counseling will be provided by another healthcare specialist, like a certified counselor or psychologist.
    Like other doctors, psychiatrists employ diagnostic tools like CT scans and MRI in order to observe the structure and function of a patient's brain.
    Once a diagnosis is made, these specialists may use behavior or cognitive therapy in order to address the patient's condition, or a multitude of other types of therapy, in conjunction with or in place of medication.

Poorly run office

Very poor communication, no one explains what tests you'll betaking or what they entail. I was kept waiting over 2 hours for my first appointment and then offered Wellbutrin to stop smoking instead of addressing my pain, which was my reason for being there. The receptionist is inefficient and short tempered, the office is overbooked and unfriendly.

Full Review Rating Breakdown
Dismal

Horrible follow up and has always been that way since I started with her 2008. I continue to see her for my meds that's it. She ordered blood work for me and after 5 calls to her the receptionist tells me to call LabCorp and have them sent results. I called Labcorp and a recording comes on stating that ordering physician has to call for results.

Will Not Recommend

Visited Dr. Rabinowich's office in July. I felt Dr. Rabinowich's bedside manner was a little dismissive. Didn't really offer the best treatment for my situation. To tell someone not to carry anything at all and then to tell them to use a messenger bag was contradicting. Didn't bother to look at my x-rays. The physical tests she conducted were tests I had already had done at my chiropractor's office and shoulder specialist office. Won't ever use her again.
