Dima Adl has the following 4 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.
- 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.
- 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.

Dr. Adl is a pleasant doctor. However, she didn't seem to be too concerned about my overall care. I have a respiratory disease that also affects other areas of my body. When I first saw Dr. Adl, she did what I consider to be a proper examination. She the suggested that I have a sleep study done. I complied, but when I got the results she told me that I was one point from being classified as having sleep apnea. Then she tells me that she was going to recommend and order me a CPAP machine anyway. I thought this was unusual, however, I like an idiot agreed. From that point on, when I would see her, she would only talk to me about sleep apnea. It wouldn't be much of a visit or conversation, because the machine she requested for me is a chip machine. Which meant that before I see her, I would have to mail in the chip to the company that supplied the machine, they would then download the info, send it in to Dr. Adl and send me back the cleared chip. So, since she had the results; there wouldn't be much communicating. I repeatedly complained about my inability to sleep because of the machine, so her assistant prescribed me a medicine to only help me to get off to sleep. The things that made me to stop going to see her was... on one visit, I arrived at my exact time. When I checked in, I told the receptionist that I had a copay. She was so busy talking to other workers and answering the phone till, she forgot to process my copay. Which meant that she had to go back into the system and my account to process it. Then she started having trouble with the printer. In the meantime, they called my name to go to the examination room. The receptionist told the nursing assistant that she was trying to give me my copy of the receipt. While I was waiting, the next scheduled appt. came in. When I finally got to the examination room, Dr. Adl walked in calling me by the next patients name, turned around and walked out, and went across the hall to the other patients room. She sent her assistant in to take care of me. I didn't like that at all. I was not the reason for the delay in her seeing me, it was the receptionist and their faulty printer. The assistant is not a doctor and she can't address my concerns properly. And still, that visit lasted all of 5 minutes. The last visit I had with Dr. Adl, she did he usual; which was to give me the results of the CPAP machine and end our visit. She got up to walk out the door and I had to tell her to wait. Then I preceeded to tell her that my breathing had been giving me some issues. She wrote out a prescription for an albuterol and walked out. She didn't ask my any questions, listen to my breathing or anything. Just wrote and left. That was becoming the norm for our visits. Only talying about the CPAP results, and not checking or asking about my other issues. I started seeing this doctor because of my respiratory problems and making sure that my disease isn't doing any further damage. Not for sleep apnea, and a machine that I didn't need. So, I don't bother going to see her. I'm happy to hear that she's the perfect doctor for some, butshe isn't for me. Also, that albuterol was completely useless. Perhaps, if she had took time out to ask me about it and listen to my lungs--- she could have given me the right one.
Dr. Adl treated my spouse for sleep-related issues. There were numerous concerns with the CPAP machine and the provider, especially with pressure. During the last doctor's visit, a nurse practitioner covered the appointment, questioned the patient's pressure complaints (condescending), and suggested that she would be in touch after talking with Dr. Adl. Two weeks passed, never heard back, and the machine became intolerable. After calling the office twice for a solution, they finally contacted the machine provider to learn that my spouse was corrected and an adjustment was needed. By that time, we'd already packed the machine away and moved on. At an earlier appointment with Dr. Adl, we apprised of her of the poor service, no coaching as promised, from the CPAP provider and requested a change. Dr. Adl, suggesting there were other companies, did NOT want the current provider to know that SHE had made mention of other companies or a possible change. The CPAP company management apologized to us for their lack of attention and service. Please do your homework before considering this physician and the challenges associated with treatment.
