Jamaica, NY (PRWEB) July 16, 2009
Astramed Physician P.C. recently hired Dr. Arnold Lentnek, a leading Internal Medicine and Infectious Disease specialist. Dr. Lentnek originally practicing in Atlanta, GA now serves the Bronx community where he provides services to HIV/AIDS patients at an Astramed facility on 913B East Tremont Avenue in the Bronx, NY.
Dr. Arnold Lentnek is an Infectious Diseases veteran. He is the author of over 40 papers and has conducted many research projects in these areas as well as in the treatment of bacterial and fungal infections. Dr. Lentnek has been treating patients with HIV/AIDS for more than 30 years and has cared for individuals with Hepatitis C since effective treatments for this condition were developed over 15 years ago.
"We're excited to include experts such as Dr. Arnold Lentnek in the Astramed family," said Dr. Kevin Lowe, Astramed Physician, P.C.-CEO. "With his addition, we can continue to provide our patients with the highest-quality HIV/AIDS care."
"Unlike diabetes and hypertension, the field of Infectious Diseases is one of the few areas where you can actually cure, not just relieve and manage symptoms," said Dr. Lentnek. "HIV/AIDS treatment is rapidly evolving. It takes a skilled team like the one at Astramed to make diagnosis and treatment as effective as possible. Serving our patients and the broader community is always our goal."
The joining of Dr. Lentnek marks the sixth Internal Medicine doctor to be introduced into the Astramed Physician family since the organization was founded sixteen years ago by Dr. Kevin Lowe, CEO.
