Specialties

Dr. Carl A Smart 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.

Best Pulmonary Doctor in North Carolina !!!

Knows what he is doing. Always a wealth of information. Excellent bedside manor. Will answer any and all questions that other Drs. just dont have a clue about. Not just a specialist in pulmonary medicine, he is also a specialist in listening to what your concerns are and making sure your needs are met. Would never go to anyone else!!

OMG, the worst medical experience ever

After being referred by my doctor I went to this "specialist" and could not get over the unprofessional and downright rude experience I had. From the nurses to the doctor himself. Needless to say I will never set foot in that office again.
