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 who completed her residency at North Shore University Hospital in Manhasset, NY. Her initial objective is to intelligently find a cause 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.
She has a new text book out entitled, Vitamins and Minerals. It is an eye-opening guide that separates truth from myth about dozens of today’s common and popular supplements. It covers the effects of the deficiency of each nutrient, its primary uses, dosages, food sources, potential side effects, and mechanism of action, helping readers make informed decisions about use of these under-regulated, over-the-counter "nutraceuticals.”
