About Dr. Alexandre R Abreu MD
Dr. Alexandre R Abreu has 2 locations
Dr. Alexandre R Abreu has the following 4 specialties
- Sleep Medicine
A sleep medicine specialist is specially trained in diagnosing and treating disorders involving sleep.
Sleep disorders such as sleep apnea, restless leg syndrome and insomnia are very common and can often cause other serious health issues, such as depression, asthma, and migraines. Sleep medicine specialists often work in sleep centers where they observe a patient while sleeping and monitor brain waves, behavior, and vital signs in order to identify the causes of sleep disturbance, or an inability to sleep (insomnia).
Sleep medicine specialists treat patients through advising on sleep hygiene, providing cognitive behavioral therapy, using light therapy, or medical sleep aides.
- 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.
- Critical Care Medicine
Also sometimes referred to as intensivists, critical care specialists are physicians with specialized training in the diagnosis and management of life-threatening conditions. Some of these conditions affect vital organs like the heart and lungs, those that make breathing difficult or impossible, and those that affect entire organ systems, like the renal system.
Critical care specialists are typically found in a hospital's intensive care unit where they monitor patients with life-threatening conditions and make determinations as to the best course of treatment.
- 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.

Profit harvesting Scammer and fake smile
Self-verified patient of Dr. Alexandre R Abreu - Posted on January 26th, 2019
This guy is a huge scammer. Avoid his clinic unless you want to be trapped in a sea of pain and economic costs. He will literally ruin your life when it comes to money and will create a flurry of unecesarry costs and misdiagnose people on a regular basis. He isn’t one of he most dishonest doctors I have ever met and hides his scamming with a fake smile that he camoiflages with complex made up medical terms that aren’t even relevant. My cousins got misdiagnosed by dr Abreu and a year later suffered a stroke because of the lack ignoras treatments and poor meds he gave him. Personally I had a horrible experience and he literally stole $14,000 dollar from me in what amounted to a couple of sleep studies and unnecessary treatments with his doctor friends /colleagues from who he takes a cut. He is one of the fakest, most intellectually dishonest clinicians I have e ever met and still managed to get awards based solely on how good he is at manipulation and hiding his real agenda which is nothing more than MAKING MONEY. He doesn’t care about his patients , just wants to extract as many dollars as possible and leave them in a worse position than hey were when they Camembert in as this helps him keep patients thinking they need his services. Avoid this scammer at all costs and do not pay the ridiculous $7000 fee for his scam sleep studies.
