Specialties

Dr. Steven A Sawelson 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.

  • 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.

I would recommend Dr Sawelson to anyone. He has been my physician for many years, and I have utmost faith in him and what his treatment plan is for me. He has a caring way that speaks most likely of being raised with good manners himself.

Dr. Sawelson has been my Mother and Father in law's doctor for a long time. He has been caring, kind and compassionate as well as completely on top of their care. My mother in law recently passed away and he personally took the time to call and offer condolances (her only doctor that did).
