Adult Specialties

When patients need a specialist for their health concern, they can count on us. After providing a skilled assessment and diagnosis, we work closely with patients on a treatment plan, if needed. Our doctors and care teams are here to help.

WHEN TO SEE A SPECIALIST

A specialist is a doctor who:

  • Treats certain areas of the body, as a dermatologist treats the skin
  • Treats a particular type of disease, as a cardiologist treats heart problems
  • Is skilled in special techniques, such as surgery

All specialists have advanced training and are certified by specialty boards. Alameda Health System offers more than 25 specialist services. Patients are referred to specialists by primary care or emergency room physicians.

If you have questions about seeing a specialist, contact your primary care physician. If you do not have a primary care physician, call 510-437-8500 to make an appointment.

We help patients with diseases that affect the immune system. Our specialists will help with tests and treatments to give the best care for personal needs.
