Specialties

Dr. Basheeruddin M Farooki 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.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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.

Unfortunately, my experience with Dr. Farooki was very poor. The office staff was amazing! but after that I ended up waiting quite a long time before he even came into the exam room. After he arrived late I was able to hear him talking to a drug rep while 2 patients had been waiting for him for over 30 minutes. An hour after my appointment was scheduled to start I finally saw the doctor. Beyond just the wait when he came into the exam room he hadn't even looked at my chart, talked at me, and was very condescending. He was stating completely wrong information about me. And barely let me talk and give information about my actual experience with the new cpap machine. He talked about things as if I was clueless. And while this was just a conversation, and I wasn't being examined; without asking and letting me know what he was doing he came over and lifted up my pant leg. I would have much rather he ask permission before touching me and at least definitely let me know what he was doing or that he wanted to look at my leg, or listen to my lungs. I felt it was like his brief presence was totally scattered and all over the place. He was very fatphobic, and not attentive and fully present during the visit. He was late, and over all just seemed unprofessional and not good at explaining when questions were asked. I would not recommend him, especially if you're a person of size or want a doctor who practices consent, is attentive, and not condescending.
