Specialties

Dr. Amitabha Karmakar 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.

Having had a bad experience with another pulmonary doctor, I was referred to Dr. Karmaker. I found him to be excellent with taking the time to explain every issue with me. He and his staff were ALL the best. Friendly and knowledgeable. I highly recommend he and his staff.

Dr. Karmakar is fantastic! He promises to find out why a person is having problems, orders all of the necessary tests and refers out, if necessary! He also made sure to have me come back for a follow-up, and I really really like him! The best doctor I have ever seen for pulmonary problems! I am so glad Dr. Lu referred me to him! He made me feel comfortable and explained everything in detail to me and my husband! Awesome doctor! I sure do recommend him to anyone who needs the answer to their lung problems! Great doctor experience! Mary

Makes me feel 2nd rate

Could be knowledgable, be doesn't seem to want to pass all patient information on. My primary gave me insight into a report and couldn't believe that he didn't tell me about a condition that showed up on a scan. He walks off as if he's in a bad mood half the time and doesn't finish answering questions. I haven't been able to get a follow-up appt. Every time I am scheduled, I wait 2 months to go in and then they cancel at the last minute. They don't return calls. ( the call center will but not the person you need for the specific doctor.) He needs a better relationship with the patient.
