  • Infectious Disease

    An infectious disease specialist has specialized training in the diagnosis and treatment of contagious diseases.
    Infectious diseases, also known as contagious or transmissible diseases, are those that stem from pathogen from a host organism. These infections may spread to other carriers through physical touch, airborne inhalation, bodily fluids or contaminated foods.
    Infectious disease specialists identify whether the disease is caused by bacteria, a virus, a fungus or a parasite often through blood tests and then determine what course of treatment, if any, is necessary.

  • 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.

THIS DOCTOR IS AWFUL- RUN AWAY! I had some blood work done and when I went in, he hadn't reviewed any of my blood work at all. Luckily I had picked up my OWN blood work (because it took a month to get into his office because he only works one afternoon a week and had to reschedule once so he could attend a conference). My rheumatoid factor was 190 (the normal levels are 0-13), and when I asked him why my levels were so high, he proceeded to tell me he hadn't tested my rheumatoid levels. When I told him he did, he went back and checked and realized that he had. If I hadn't been on top of my blood work (THANKFULLY better than he was) I would have left with no answers at all. All that, and I had to pay $70 to boot. He is a doctor who obviously doesn't care about his patients. I DO NOT recommend anyone visiting this practice- save your own money and find a doctor who will care.
