Specialties

Dr. Sharon G Berkowitz 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.

  • Pediatrics

    A pediatrician is a doctor who specializes in the regular care of children, as well as the diagnosis and treatment of illness in children. Young patients are often more complicated to treat because they are still growing and developing.
    While pediatricians may sub-specialize in specific therapy areas like oncology, surgery, ophthalmology, and anesthesiology, in general, pediatricians provide services like vaccinations, health exams, and treatment of common ailments and injuries. In addition, pediatricians are trained to handle the complex emotional and behavioral issues faced by children, especially during puberty.
    Pediatricians normally see their patients from birth until the age of 18, although some may agree to treat patients into their early 20s, if requested.

Trust broken

My family went to Berkowitz for 2 yrs. I loved her until we moved & had to get our records transferred & had the chance to read them. She called DSS about my then 2 yr old who had fallen on an exercise machine & had a burn type injury. It was 'suspicious' because I didn't report it until the next day. This is a doctor who had seen every member of our family & never in a million would of thought she would do something like that without even saying something to me or ask a question, anything. We stayed there even with the rude receptionists, the long, long wait times in both waiting room & telephone. Refills were always totally ridiculous to get. I waited 2 weeks for my sons medication refill which he needed on a daily basis. Glad we are out of there.

Amazing!!!

Dr. Berkowitz is one of the few doctors that still treat the patient and not just the symptom. She creates a very relaxed atmosphere which makes it very easy to discuss health issues and participate in an individualized treatment plan. She is an amazingly skilled health care provider.
