Dr. Elsira M Pina 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.

Inadequate Staff

Dr Pina seems very competent. However, her staff is terrible. Sent me to UC hospital for an involved test w/o telling me that I could not have coffee for 8 hrs prior or use my inhauler for 24 hrs prior. It took 2 wks and 2 phone calls from me to get blood work results. I received apologies from the doc and her staff, but that was not acceptable. I wonder if she will reimburse me for the 2-1/2 hours of work that I missed and the 1/4 tank of gas to go to UC Hospital and NOT be able to be given the test. I won't be returning to this doctor.
