Advanced Medicine of New York is a unique center that caters to patients who want a comprehensive and personal approach to their health concerns and prevention strategies. Medical Director, Dr. Zina Kroner is a board-certified internist whose initial objective is to intelligently delineate an etiology to a set of medical concerns. She utilizes astute history taking and state-of-the-art integrative and traditional laboratory and radiologic tests. Then, evidence-based nutritional and medical treatments are customized and integrated into a patient’s treatment regimen. Dr. Kroner engages in proactive (rather that reactive) medical and nutritional management, encouraging discussion of cause and effect, patient education, and application of up-to-date prevention strategies.
