Specialties

Dr. Michael S Kushner has the following 2 specialties

  • Gastroenterology

    A gastroenterologist is a specialist in diagnosis and treatment of conditions involving the digestive/gastrointestinal (GI) tract. These doctors are experts on how food moves through the digestive system and is chemically broken down, with nutrients being absorbed and waste excreted. You might see this kind of doctor if you are experiencing any number of stomach issues, some of which might be severe diarrhea, irritable bowel syndrome, hemorrhoids, ulcers, acid reflux, Crohn's disease and more.

  • 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.

Compassion and flexibility

I have been a patient of Dr. Kushner's for as long as I can remember. He has always respected my medical, diet and lifestyle choices while managing my gastro illnesses and health. While I do have a GP at a larger practice where it would be convenient to also get all my specialty care I would not change gastro doctors.

Excellent listener

I have been to many specialists before but Dr Kushner seemed to be the most caring and concerned. Many of my friends go to him and won't go anywhere else. Now I know why
