Specialties

Dr. Abraham M Ishaaya has the following 3 specialties

  • Internal Medicine

    An internist is a physician who focuses on the diagnosis and treatment of conditions that affect the adult population—both acute and chronic.
    These doctors are often who adults see as their primary physicians because they treat a broad range of illnesses that do not require surgical or specialist interventions. They also work to help a patient maintain optimal health in order to prevent the onset of disease.
    In addition to treating the common cold and flu, internists also treat chronic diseases like diabetes and heart disease.

  • Pulmonary Disease

    A pulmonologist is a physician who specializes in the diagnosis and treatment of conditions related to the lungs and respiratory tract.
    These specialists are similar to critical care specialists in that their patients often require mechanical ventilation to assist their breathing.
    Pulmonologists diagnose and treat patients with conditions such as asthma, cystic fibrosis, asbestosis, pulmonary fibrosis, lung cancer, COPD, and emphysema. Exposure and inhalation of certain toxic substances may also warrant the services of a pulmonologist.
    Some of the tools and tests pulmonologists use to diagnose a patient are a stethoscope in order to listen for abnormal breathing sounds, chest X-rays, CT scans, blood tests, bronchoscopy, and polysomnography.

TERRIBLE EXPERIENCE

I had a persistent and productive cough. The correct treatment would have been to send me to Quest to spit in a cup. The analysis of the phlegm would have shown I had a lung infection which could be cured with antibiotics. Instead, I had an appointment with Abraham Ishaaya who - Sent me for a CT scan, after which he told me I had severe hazing, and either aspergillosis or micobacterium avium. Both of these diseases are serious and with no sure cure. He told me I would need a biopsy so he could find out which disease it was. He performed a bronchoscopy which involved a hospital visit and GENERAL ANAESTHETIC. Needless to say, his fee for this procedure was high. After getting the first results, Ishaaya said I had an inflammation and would need steroids for three months. When he had the next results, he told me I had penicillium (a rare disease usually found in rats in Vietnam) and prescribed strong anti-fungal medicine. When my condition didn't improve, he said I would need another and more invasive biopsy. At this point, I went for a second opinion. The second doctor read the same results that Ishaaya had read and said I did not, and had never had, penicillium. What I did have was a lung infection. I was told to stop taking the anti-fungal medication immediately and was prescribed antibiotics. My condition improved daily and I was cured in two weeks. When I contacted Ishaaya to ask him why he hadn't told me I had this infection, he said he didn't think it was important. Perhaps he also doesn't think it's important to listen to his patients' breathing, as he never did with me. In fact, I never once saw him with a stethoscope and I am extremely perplexed by the number of positive reviews on this page. I requested a copy of my records (which confirmed all of the above) and submitted a report to the Medical Board. They did not uphold my complaint but at least there's now a paper trail. I can't be the only one he's done this
