- Geriatric Medicine
A geriatric specialist is a physician who treats the elderly population and the conditions that most commonly affect them. These doctors have special training in the effects of aging on the body and mind of a patient.
Geriatric specialists treat common ailments faced by senior citizens, such as frailty, incontinence, memory problems, arthritis, senility, decreased functioning and more.
In addition, geriatric specialists keep abreast of the different medications that an elderly person is prescribed to treat their more complex health issues in order to decrease adverse side effects and avoid dangerous drug interactions.
- 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.
- Addiction Medicine
An addiction medicine specialist is a doctor who treats patients with addictions to substances like drugs and alcohol or, in some cases, behaviors like gambling. Many of these specialists also treat the diseases that stem from these addictions.
These physicians are specially trained to prevent and treat the disease of addiction via psychiatric means, or other fields of medicine like family or internal medicine.

A sports medicine specialist is a physician who is trained to diagnose and treat injuries and conditions caused by participation in athletic activities.
These doctors are generally employed by professional sports teams to care for the athletes who are injured. They have extensive knowledge of the types of injuries that athletes are most susceptible to, such as stress fractures, sprains, concussions, muscle cramps, ACL injuries, and shin splints.

They make sure to highlight the discreet facility and staff, location, and, the name of his practice; in one way by referring to patients as "VIP" as if that takes the burn of $150 each monthly visit. Otherwise he is a perfectly good Dr. for all things considered and if you need Suboxone he is certified. He is invested in his patients, seemingly more so than some others. Although, of course @ $150! for less than an hour, on most times, WHAT MORE would it take to get your Dr. to actually CARE and be invested in their patient. They do good work THO you WILL PAY for the discreetness and personalized care as they don't take any insurance. Other than that this Dr. is by all means intelligent, understanding, and, caring in the way only a Dr. can. Yet, somewhere I think there IS a Dr. who truly can empathize better. Still it's hard thing as the documentary "Money Driven Medicine," shows how America's medical system has been Industrialized, Dr.'s who accept insurance are NOT paid by TIME SPENT with patients, rather they are paid by "units of care", i.e. routines, procedures, tests, lab work, and, so on, where it can be "measured" in some sorts the amount of work a Dr. does. I ramble though I'd recommend Dr. Hennessey ANY day for those who CAN AFFORD IT and who need specialized treatment, such as, substance abuse and pain management, so on.
