Specialties

Dr. Stephen R Karbowitz has the following 2 specialties

  • Pulmonary Disease

    A pulmonologist is a physician who specializes in the diagnosis and treatment of conditions related to the lungs and respiratory tract.
    These specialists are similar to critical care specialists in that their patients often require mechanical ventilation to assist their breathing.
    Pulmonologists diagnose and treat patients with conditions such as asthma, cystic fibrosis, asbestosis, pulmonary fibrosis, lung cancer, COPD, and emphysema. Exposure and inhalation of certain toxic substances may also warrant the services of a pulmonologist.
    Some of the tools and tests pulmonologists use to diagnose a patient are a stethoscope in order to listen for abnormal breathing sounds, chest X-rays, CT scans, blood tests, bronchoscopy, and polysomnography.

  • 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.

Thorough and very considerate

My mother went for follow up after bring discharged from hospital. I had some concerns about her lung and Dr. Kabowitz suggests a CT scan to compare to previous scan. He pressed for an immediate appointment on her behalf (and got it! She is 86 years old and traveling is always cumbersome especially with her asthma. Dr, Kabowitz explained all her medications to me, I feel good that dear Mom is in good hands. I do suggest appointment at the hospital, Mom had to wait over 3 hours at the Horace Harding location.

a kind doctor

Dr. Karbowitz is very intelligent, caring and sympathetic towards his patients, he spends a lot of time with you and explains your options. He is patient and understanding and leaves the major decision up to the patient whether to follow his advice or wait and see what happens. His bedside manner is great there should be many more doctors such as him and the health profession would be a better place for all. His staff is friendly and courteous and also helpful in making the follow up appointment for you. He is a true asset to the facility where he works. I have never met a doctor that was so polite and professional at the same time. He is a real gem!
