Dr. Emeka M Eziri has the following 3 specialties
- 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.
- 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.

Began seeing this doctor for sleep apnea. Then he started charging me $75 just for telling me that I need to stop smoking, folks insurance doesn't cover it!!! Then he just ups and tells me that I have COPD and need oxygen, well I wanted a second opinion. And I'm glad that I did!!! I don't have COPD and I don't need oxygen.
Dr. Eziri interacts very well with his patients and staff friendly, professional and caring doctor. He is very compassionate about providing superior care, and has tons of knowledge about his profession. I personally would refer this doctor to anyone with needs of COPD, Sleep problems, and asthma/allergy's.
Dr Eziri is very thoughtful and patient, he is also very smart and thinks of things no one else would think about. He has taken GREAT care of me and my asthma!
