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.
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.

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.
Women Unite! This doctor is also an OB-GYN! If you have a doctor you do not like, you MUST change to Dr. Berkowitz!If you are in the first stages of finding a doctor because you don't have one, you MUST make an appointment with Dr.Berkowitz! And if you're a male OR female and have any medical problems that you need to address, I can't say enough about this woman. Both my husband and I are her patients and he agrees we have found our "forever" doctor.
