Specialties

Dr. Douglas B Hornick 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.

Thankful

Dr. Hornick has been my pulmonary physician for more than a decade. That in itself says a lot, for I am still alive and usually able to enjoy life. He has guided my care through harrowing hospitalizations and simple tune-ups. He listens carefully to me, explains my questions until I understand, and bases my treatment on his vast store of knowledge, past experiences, and communication with pier groups or individuals. Beyond his professionalism he is a genuinely nice guy with a sense of humor, honor, truth, and adventure. I am thankful for Dr. Hornick.

Dr. Hornick and staff were always prompt, courteous and very caring. I appreciated being able to call during terminal stages of my husband's illness to get prescriptions to ease his discomfort. My husband has since passed away but we were both very relieved to have Dr. Hornick's care.
