Specialties

Dr. Sheldon I Lidofsky has the following 2 specialties

  • Gastroenterology

    A gastroenterologist is a specialist in diagnosis and treatment of conditions involving the digestive/gastrointestinal (GI) tract. These doctors are experts on how food moves through the digestive system and is chemically broken down, with nutrients being absorbed and waste excreted. You might see this kind of doctor if you are experiencing any number of stomach issues, some of which might be severe diarrhea, irritable bowel syndrome, hemorrhoids, ulcers, acid reflux, Crohn's disease and more.

  • 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.

He's the Best there is!!!!

Dr.Lidofsky diagnosed my intestinal problem which I had been suffering with for years. He found out through a colonoscopy that I have Crohns desease. It's not an easy thing to live with but at least it's under control with medication. He's great, does blood work when necessary and has regular follow ups with patients. The one thing I can say simply is.....HE'S THE BEST!!!!
