Specialties

Dr. Robin H Dretler has the following 2 specialties

  • 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.

  • Infectious Disease

    An infectious disease specialist has specialized training in the diagnosis and treatment of contagious diseases.
    Infectious diseases, also known as contagious or transmissible diseases, are those that stem from pathogen from a host organism. These infections may spread to other carriers through physical touch, airborne inhalation, bodily fluids or contaminated foods.
    Infectious disease specialists identify whether the disease is caused by bacteria, a virus, a fungus or a parasite often through blood tests and then determine what course of treatment, if any, is necessary.

20 years later

20 years ago you told me if I didn't follow your protocol I would die. I vowed at that point to live to prove you wrong. As I have aged ,as you, I hope you have changed your approach to patients. Although at the time I thought you were rude and insensitive.. I have now realized you were part of my driving force to prove you wrong. So thank you in a weird way. I've been waiting twenty years just to write you.

Five Stars

Exceptional bedside manner. Very caring and compassionate. Easy to talk to and provides clear answers to questions taking the time both listen and explain. Competence and ability appear to be top notch. While there may be waits in the waiting room or to get an appt I believe this is because of the high demand for his services and the individual time and attention he gives to each individuaal
