TRADITIONAL MEDICINE

Dr. Colker’s practice specialties include internal medicine, sports medicine, and nutrition. He is licensed in medicine and surgery and on the faculty at Cornell University and New York-Presbyterian Hospital where he is Clinical Assistant Professor of Medicine in Neurology in New York City.
Traditional allopathic medicine means medical care from a real, licensed medical professional. There is no escaping the fundamental necessity of mainstream medical care and the lifesaving benefits modern medicine has brought to all our lives. You must have a true traditional medical physician on your side at all times. The key is to have a qualified professional that is both skilled in medicine and knowledgeable, but also open to all effective methods and means outside their classical disease-based training, especially when mainstream medicine isn’t the answer. But never should you stray too far from the essential base of the traditional medical approach.
Waiting to see a medical doctor for something simple or even just getting a doctor on the phone to answer a basic question or get a prescription can be annoying, unbearable at times, or even impossible in some cases.
Primary care is the general day-to-day practice of medicine, and often seen as the first stop when it comes to healthcare. Primary care includes preventive medicine, meaning keeping you up to date on all your screening in an effort to make doctor visits fewer and further between.

Menopause isn’t easy for any woman. The body changes dramatically due to fluctuations in hormones and, along with those changes, a woman’s appearance can also change quite dramatically. In fact, the physical morphing can be so dramatic and so quick to take hold at menopause, that the shock may take a staggering emotional toll. Answers to your questions are challenging to come by. Do you take hormones or not? Sometimes your gynecologist can help, but more often than not, their arsenal and fundament of knowledge of the entire landscape of choices is understandably limited. Working with them, your own primary care doctor, and/or our medical staff, we can provide a complete array of bio-identical options, natural hormone support regimens, and other approaches to alleviate symptoms and help rescue youthfulness from the ravages of age.
