Specialties

Dr. Syed T Rab 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.

This guy would have me cancel already established appointments with patients for lunches with drug reps, and if he was delayed while at Mosque. He would also call me in the middle of night to cancel appointments saying he had to make emergency trips to Pakistan. Not an easy person to work for, since his priorities were not with patients. I believe that Dr.'s like this should be examined for their relationships with drug reps, when it interferes with the patients he is entrusted to. People who need a kidney specialist, and or dialysis should come first and foremost. Not drug reps.
