Specialties

Dr. Doddanna Krishna Jr 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.

Great Doctor

Dr. Krishna has been my doctor since 1990, he has been there with me through thick and thin. Dr. Krishna has incredible bedside matter and he is a doctor who listens to what the patient has to say before he makes a discussion. Dr Krishna understands the whole picture not just the medical records. Dr Krishna is a very very knowledgeable, caring and loving doctor .

Bad Doctor

This Doctor is nothing more than a licensed Pill pusher. Prescriptions and nursing home admitting appear to he his specialty. Preventive care, bedside manner, empathy and respect for professional ethics are lacking. Medication follow up are definitely an area of weakness in his practice. Extremely arrogant and lacks transparency with regards to diagnosis and prognosis. Too many patients, long waking times at the office. Does not respond to well to questions. Careful with elderly patients. Advocate, ask the questions and demand transparency. . children and our elderly need a voice. Demand explanations and answers. I strongly urge you to seek other health care options. Beware.

Cattle call dr. Impossible to talk to.

IN and OUT burger listens to you better. On phone during entire visit. Secretary follows him with a laptop. Had no idea he saw me in the hospital for pneumonia a week before. Unfortunately us rural folks are very hard up for decent good ole fashioned Amerian doctors.
