An ophthalmologist has the training to do much more than just prescribe glasses. They are physicians specially trained to diagnose and treat disorders of the eyes and vision. These doctors are experts on the complicated anatomy of the eye and are trained to treat eye diseases through both medical and surgical methods.
Some common conditions that ophthalmologists treat are cataracts, glaucoma, strabismus, diabetic retinopathy, macular degeneration and amblyopia. In addition, ophthalmologists can provide prescriptions for eye glasses and contact lenses and perform LASIK surgery and other corrective surgeries for refractive errors like myopia (near-sightedness), hyperopia (far-sightedness), astigmatism and presbyopia.
- 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.
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.

I was referred to Dr. McKenna almost a year ago following my first major surgery (resection rectopexy). My surgeon felt I had underlying issues with my bowels, and felt Dr. McKenna would be a good fit for me. He was completely right. Initially, I did not know what to expect, and at first felt Dr. McKenna was as puzzled as me as to what was really going on with me; however, he listened, asked a lot of clarifying questions, was patient, and tried multiple attempts with medication regimes to try to find improvement. When medications did not work, we would try different attempts. He never gave up on me. After medications did not appear to be working, he referred me for further testing for his suspicion of what was going on with me, and sent me to Temple, where he had spent substantial time for his residency. After the testing, his suspicions were correct, and he remained by my side with answering any and all questions, in addition to helping me manage my symptoms and pain until my surgery. If I had a question or concern, he encouraged me to call the office, and he always returned my calls promptly, never rushing me off the phone. He contacted and talked to my surgeon of choice when it was time to take the next step toward scheduling a colectomy. After my colectomy surgery, he was visiting me at the hospital, trying to ramify my post-surgical nausea and sickness, which he was patient w/ but successful in treating. All in all, if you are looking for someone to take their time with you, listen, be analytic, and patient, Dr. McKenna is an excellent choice. He will not rush you out the door and will not make you feel like your problems do not matter. Instead, he will help you in anyway he can. Highly recommend.
