Specialties

Dr. Russell J Crew 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.

Strong mind. Thinks through health challenges with unmatched insight and straight forward medical knowledge! If you are a patient who has had considerable experience with both doctors and hospitals, I am especially speaking to you when I share, Dr. Crew has a gifted ability to get to the point, while at the same time takes into consideration the various diagnoses (and implications) involved in your case with a kind and professional demeanor. I don't say this lightly: HE IS A GREAT ASSET TO YOUR TEAM OF DOCTORS.

The Best!

Dr. Crew is an amazing doctor. He has been handling my case after my second kidney transplant & I couldn't be happier with my care. I am convinced that I would have lost the transplanted kidney (as I did the first transplanted kidney) were it not for the excellent care of Dr Crew & the amazing staff at NYP's transplant division as well as the outstanding ICU Staff. Due to severe complications following a second transplant, I spent almost 4 months at NYP so I feel I have considerable knowledge about the facility - its the best!! I would not trust my life nor the lives of my loved ones to any other facility. Dr Crew & the transplant staff go above & beyond any expectations. Don't hesitate to trust them with your life.
