Specialties

Dr. Alex J Mercandetti has the following 2 specialties

  • 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.

  • 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.

Excellent Asthma Doc

Doctor Mercandetti is a great asthma doctor because of his duel specialty of Pulmonary and Allergy. Most Pulmonologists know the lungs but he also understands the mechanism behind the asthma when it is allergy related. My asthma was never fully controlled until I saw a doctor with knowledge in both pulmonary and allergies. I have been with the doctor since 1990 and have referred him to my friends and family. Most of the time my appointments prompt and quick, with a few exceptions of when he has had an emergency at the hospital.
