Dr. Bennet M Wang has the following 3 specialties
- 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.

I was very happy with the care from the Bellevue Group Health facility until I was transferred to Dr. Wang. No explaination was given for the change of doctors, even when I asked Dr. Wang himself. When I arrived to my appointment I expected a quick check up to see how my new medication was working (wonderfully! I was feeling like a new person!). Instead he informed me he had read my file, changed my diagnoses (to something I have been told by two other doctors I DO NOT have) and created a new treatment plan for me. He laid out a list of new tests I was to have performed (some of which I had already done but "it would be interesting to do them again") and quickly handed me off to an assistant before I had a chance to recover from the shock of what was happening.He asked me several questions during the appointment. He let me get one or two sentences into my answer before talking over me. He asked me if I had a habit of doing a certain thing, when I told him I have never done it he told me I wouldn't know if I had anyways. I was never once allowed to express a complete thought. I never got an answer to why he was now my specialist. I asked three times why he had diagnosed me differently and only received vague answers such as, "I throughly read your file." or "I like to explore all possible options." He requested that I rent equipment and take tests that, by his own admission, other doctors probably wouldn't recommend and that I may not need. When I asked him to clarify something he told me, "I already explained that to you very clearly." and continued on. His write up of the appointment states I agreed to do certain procedures which I never agreed to. He is condescending, impatient, and gives no impression about caring about you as a person.All support staff were excellent. The nurse that attended to me that day in particular was amazing.
