Dr. Arnold Ostrow 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.

Doctor and Prey Relationship

Time to speak up... He was our family doctor when I was a teen over thirty years ago. He would press himself onto me as he examined me. The first time I thought maybe it was an accident but he did it the next visit. I tried to block it out and vowed I wouldn't be in the same position again. Somehow I felt responsible. I was 15. It is unfortunate I got very ill with mononucleosis and couldn't get to a new doctor. BI thought I outwitted him by having my friend go in with me. Nope! He still figured out a way to press his bulge on me. Each time I tried to block it out. I didn't want to be a victim and I thought if I reacted that he might be rewarded for it. I never returned to his office. My parents never said anything to him or his office staff.

Find someone else--anyone else!

The worst bedside manner I have ever seen in a doctor. The nurses at the hospital told me to find another doctor because he is so nasty and condescending to them and to his patients.
