Specialties

Dr. Robert D Platzman 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.

  • 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.

Good Dr.

I considered beginning with a new Dr. closer to my home after the retirement of my previous physician but had a very good experience with Dr. P. on a first visit. He's thorough, patient, offers opportunity for questions and listens carefully and takes my input seriously. In 4 yrs I've never waited more than 10 minutes before being called to see the Dr. I recommend him highly.

Our previous family doctor retired. We had no complaints for 25 years, except rather long waits for scheduled appointments. While we may or may not live another 25 years for comparison, the first four or five with Dr. P. as our G.P. have been exactly what we needed and would figure in any potential calculation to move away from Princeton.

Not surprised to find he's only got 7 years of experience. This foolhardy, inexperienced young'un does not know what he's doing. Took months and months and never diagnosed a quite serious disease that I was finally hospitalized for by another doctor. Is this really what we have come to in health care in one of the country's top university towns?
