Specialties

Dr. Richard D Adelman has the following 2 specialties

  • 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.

  • Family Medicine

    A family practitioner is a doctor who specializes in caring for people of all ages, at all stages of life. Rather than focusing on the treatment of one disease or patient population, family practitioners are often the doctors that people see for their everyday ailments, like cold and flu or respiratory infections, and health screenings. When necessary, family practitioners will provide referrals for conditions that require the expertise of another specialist.

Not recommended :(

Dr Adelman did a great job with the circumcision of my twin boys.The procedures(s) happened without a hitch, and we found Dr Adelman overall friendly and apparently very competent.There is only one problem--he told us he would give us a deal on the price of the circumcisions. Normally, he said, he would charge us $200 per circumcision, but for our twins he would charge $300 total. Never having paid anyone out-of-pocket for a circumcision, I thought that was a bit steep, but it sounded like he knew what he was doing, and he was recommended by someone I trusted, so I agreed to $300 for the pair.Afterthe circumcisions, wewent home satisfied, and I waited for the $300 bill. A few months later, sure enough, we got a statement for $300 minus about $15 for our insurance network discount. I gladly paid it, remembering that that was what we had agreed to. In hindsight, I probably should have wondered why the name of only one of my sons appeared on the statement. Six months after settling our account (or so I thought), we received ANOTHER $300 bill for the other son. After a lot of phone tag and double-checking, Dr Adelman's office (we never got to speak to him personally again--it was all through his billing department) gave us a "deal" that was still $100 more than what we had originally agreed to.Conclusion: if you want good friendly service with a chance of getting charged double, Dr Adelman is your man. Otherwise, skip it and find someone else.
