Specialties

Dr. Bushra A Mina 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.

  • 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.

Great Dr.....but front staff makes you want to stay away

Wow....Dr Mina is an amazing Dr and would highly recommend him...BUT - you must have the patience and personality to deal w/ his front desk staff...The rudest and coldest I have ever been treated!!!! Dr Mina is my primary care Dr as well as my pulmonary specialist...On my next visit to him I am asking him to suggest a new primary Dr for me.....I can not deal w/ the staff....rude - they even yell and demean you!!! I needed a referral recently and I was told I didn't need a referral and they would give me a hand written giving me permission to see another Dr!!! OMG - it took a week of phone calls [all unbelievably curt and rude] to finally get an office manager on the phone who offered to call my insurance company to prove to me that I did not need a referral...wow I did receive a phone call the following day saying that they sent a referral and I did need one!!! Why did I have to go through this is beyond me....and no apology was given!! Please do not get sick and think you will get an appt - it might take 8 -9 weeks for an appt!!!! That is why I needed a referral

Excellent Doctor

Dr. Mina saved my father's life a more than 10 years ago. My dad has been under his care ever since and has been doing exceptionally well. He is 94 yrs. young and going strong. Dr. Mina is caring and patient. He has a wonderful bedside manner and is excellent with his follow up. We are so very blessed to have him as our doctor. I highly recommend him.
