The circulatory and respiratory systems are incredibly complex and directly linked to your overall sense of good health and quality of life. Many ailments in the heart and lungs have a few symptoms or a minor symptom might appear just before a significant problem arises.

Having a highly experienced internist perform a chest X-ray and other examinations of your chest can reveal an issue before it has a chance to exacerbate.

Dr. John Abroon, MD and the internal medicine specialists at his offices on the Upper East Side of New York might recommend a chest radiograph as part of a routine medical evaluation. It might also be called for if you have suffered an injury.

This will allow us to examine the heart, lungs, lymph nodes, blood vessels, as well as the bones of the spine and chest. This can help detect a problem with the bones in the area including the ribs, collarbone, breastbone, and upper spine.

With early detection and diagnosis, Dr. Abroon can often help develop a course of treatment. This might include referring you to a specialist at one of the medical centers where Dr. Abroon has networked with.

If you live in the New York City area and you are in need of diagnosis with an internal medicine specialist, you should call (212) 288-0900 to schedule an appointment at Dr. Abroon’s clinic on the Upper East Side.
