Dr. Shirish S Joglekar 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.

Find another physician!

The worst patient experience ever! Seemed uninterested, not focused, tired and yawning in the hospital room, did not communicate at all, to the point where I had to the cardiologist contact him so we knew what was going on, and even then he acted put out that we wanted to know what was going on.Before seeing the physician, I would exhaust all other options prior to being treated by this doctor!Granted I am disgruntled, but he truly is horrible.
