Specialties

Dr. Bernard J Steyer has the following 2 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.

  • 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.

Terrible Experience with Doctor

Terrible experience with this doctor. Resistent to answer questions and when finally did he gave inaccurate information. He was also unprofessional and questioned whether I "wanted something to be wrong" when I was asking about future implications of the unexpected acute respiratory failure I had had less than 48 hours previously following a routine surgery. Just terrible.

Very Good Pulmonary Doc

I have seen him first time this month for a chronic cough, he did a thorough exam though it's my first consult appointment, prescribed a good medication for it & was relieved as soon as I took the medication. He also recommended me to an ENT for a suspect of nasal problem. Am coming back for a return appt. , will see how he would make this health problem of mine get relieved forever.

He took care of my mother when she was in the hospital. He took much more time with me than I would have expected. Most importantly, I felt as though he really listened and really cared.
