Specialties

Dr. Phyllis A August has the following 2 specialties

  • Nephrology

    A nephrologist is a physician who is specially trained to diagnose and treat conditions affecting the kidneys or renal system.
    A nephrologist will determine through urine analysis, blood test, X-ray, sonogram, or kidney biopsy how well the kidneys are functioning and will then prescribe a special diet and exercise program, medication or dialysis - a process by which a machine filters the blood when the kidney is no longer capable of doing so.

  • 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.

The Best!!

In 2009 I suffered from severe preeclampsia and delivered my son 9 weeks early. I am now 12 weeks pregnant and my OB referred me to Dr. August. She was an absolute pleasure. She was kind, professional and knowledgeable. I felt as if I was in the best of hands. I HIGHLY recommend Dr. August. You will not be disappointed.
