Specialties

Dr. Andrew S Wachtel 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.

One of The Best Doctors Possible

He is an amazingly compassionate, thorough and highly knowledgeable physician, whose precise diagnostic and treatment abilities are exceptionally good. He communicates what is honestly your health status, rather than fabricate problems for money. He has my unreserved recommendation as a lung doctor.

Dr. Wachtel spent an average of 3-4 minutes with me on each visit. Why I stayed with him for 3 years, I will never know. He had no interest in solving the cause of my problem, he only prescribed medications that were not accurate!
