Internal Medicine is a specialty of medical science which encompasses diagnosis and long-term treatment of common and complex illnesses of adolescents, adults, and the elderly, as well as prevention, wellness, and mental illness. Physicians who are trained in Internal Medicine are skilled in diagnosis and treatment of cancer, diseases of the lungs, heart, kidneys, skin, eyes, intestines, and blood.
Dr. Natasha Fuksina use scientific basis to provide direct care to their patients, ranging from health and wellness to chronic disease and mental illness.
For Dr. Fuksina, Internal Medicine is not only a specialty training and a knowledge base but a lens through which she views and assesses patient. Regardless of the patient’s complaint or a symptom, it is important to assess the impact and interplay with all other organs and systems. “Internal” diseases can have “ external” manifestations and vice versa. For example, if someone is complaining of dry eyes, the best approach would be to listen to the person and gather all the details associated with this complaint, examine him or her and then formulate differential diagnosis, listing possible diagnoses based on this particular presentation and science. The list of possibilities can include the problem related to allergic, inflammatory or infectious processes in the eyes, but it could also be secondary to a systemic illness or involvement of a particular organ system. A systematic approach to the diseases of internal structures allows for a thorough and comprehensive care of a patient.
Natasha Fuksina M.D. chooses to use bioidentical hormones over synthetic hormones for a few obvious reasons. One is that they match the cell structure and physical make-up of the hormones your body produces very closely. Both women and men achieve symptom relief faster and experience fewer side effects when they undergo hormone replacement therapy with bioidentical hormones.
MEDICAL WEIGHT LOSS
For many patients who are having a difficult time losing weight, estrogen or progesterone imbalances are often the culprit. Balanced hormones are essential for weight loss, and Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy may be used to help balance a patient’s hormones, making it easier to achieve a healthy weight.
