Specialties

Dr. Oscar Lebwohl 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.

One of the Best MD's in America for Many Reasons

Dr. Lebwohl's excellence is reflected in the staff that work with him. From the front desk reception to the procedure nurse the quality of care is exceptional. From "do you have any concerns?" asked many times, to the printed material, everything is designed to make the patient at ease and informed. Dr. Lebwohl comes to the patient to introduce himself, prior to moving into the procedure setting. This is rare and very reassuring.
