Dr. Andres Albornoz’ Internal Medicine practice is focused on the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of adult diseases, especially liver diseases such as viral and autoimmune hepatitis, hereditary conditions and non-alcoholic fatty liver.
“One of my most important goals is finding fatty liver in patients who seek primary care attention just for an annual physical or for common problems such as diabetes, hyperlipidemia, hypertension, hypothyroidism and obesity. Being that non- alcoholic fatty liver disease is a leading cause of chronic liver disease in the U.S. population and is generally asymptomatic, early diagnosis and taking advantage of the best clinical tools available is monumental in my daily practice. We have the opportunity to prevent complications and progression of the disease that could otherwise in some cases end in more severe conditions such as cirrhosis. This approach has become a game changer in my patients’ health and quality of life,” explains Dr. Albornoz.
Dr. Albornoz is a Fellow of the American College of Physicians; Fellow of the American Association for the Study of Liver Diseases and a Member of the American College of Gastroenterology.
