Dr. Abramovitz manages all acute and chronic illnesses for adult patients. She also provides wellness and women’s health services.
Abdominal and Kidney Problems: Manages a variety of conditions including peptic ulcer disease, irritable bowel disease and acid reflux.
Diabetes: Diabetes is a disease in which your blood glucose levels are too high. In Type 2 diabetes your body does not make or use insulin well and the glucose stays in your blood. Over time, too much glucose can cause serious problems. Exercise, weight control and sticking to a meal plan can help control your diabetes. You should also monitor your blood glucose level and take medicine, if prescribed.
Cholesterol: High cholesterol can increase your risk for heart attack or stroke. It has no symptoms and is detected through a blood test. A healthy diet, regular exercise and sometimes medication can help reduce high cholesterol.
General Health Maintenance: It is important for adults to see their primary care physician each year for a checkup. This allows the doctor to monitor changes in health and the opportunity to intervene before a warning sign becomes something more serious.
Gynecological Exams: To maintain good reproductive and sexual health, females should have a gynecological exam about once per year.
Heart: Manages chronic heart conditions including high blood pressure, congestive heart failure, and coronary artery disease.
Immunizations: Immunizations protect you from serious diseases and also prevent the spread of those diseases to others. There is an immunization schedule for children, preteens, teens, and adults.
Lung: Manages common lung conditions including asthma, chronic obstructive pulmonary disorder (COPD), and emphysema.
Managing Elevated Blood Pressure: High blood pressure often has no symptoms, yet it damages blood vessels and leads to serious health threats. Medications and positive lifestyle changes can help reduce your risk of diseases like heart disease, stroke, kidney disease, and vision loss. It is important to partner with your doctor to manage your blood pressure.
Office Testing and Procedure: Equipped to serve many of your medical needs on site, including blood draws, urine analysis, bone density scans, spirometry, joint injections, many skin procedures, and EKGs.
Skin Procedures: Minimally invasive dermatological skin procedures can be performed in the office, including removal of skin tags and moles, draining of an abscess, and wart treatment.
Thyroid Diseases: Thyroid hormones control the rate of many activities in your body, including how fast you burn calories and how fast your heart beats. All of these activities are your body’s metabolism. Thyroid problems include goiters, hyper- or hypo-thyroidism, cancer, nodules, or thyroiditis.
