Dr. Edward Bold 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.

Dr. Bold keeps up with the newest medical and technological changes to help him and his patients. He has shown me my lungs on different systems, different scans or Xrays that are simply amazing.After an accident, he and his team were spot on in diagnosing the problem, and helping solve it. I feel safer knowing he's on my team - which is what it feels like. Dr. Bold is "in my corner."
FEEL FRUSTRATED WITH THIS DR. I THINK HE WAS RECKLESS WITH MY HEALTH AND WELL BEING. I SUGGESTED A DIFFERENT ANTIBIOTIC SINCE THE ONE HE GAVE ME WAS NOT WORKING. I EVEN SUGGESTED THE DISGNOSIS BUT HE BLEW IT OFF. TURNS OUT AFTER LAB TESTS THAT I WAS RIGHT. HE GAVE ME THE WRONG DRUG FOR 2 WEEKS WHICH COST ME LOST TIME FROM WORK. NOW I HAVE TO TAKE THE CORRECT DRUG FOR 2 WEEKS OR MORE AND GO BACK TO WORK BECAUSE I AM OUT OF PAID SICK TIME. THIS DRUG MAKES ME DIZZY, NAUSEAOUS, AND HEART PALPATATIONS. I FEAR HAVING A SERIOUS REACTION TO THIS DRUG WHILE IN THE WORK PLACE BUT HAVE NO CHOICE.
