Specialties

Dr. Eric J Olafsson has the following 3 specialties

  • 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.

  • 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.

What a wonderful, thorough Dr! He listened compassionately and took time to explain the tests he was ordering and the reason for doing so. In this day and age of big pharma and assembly line mentatity of many large medical clinics, it was refreshing to meet a Dr who is genuine and empathetic and patient centered. Dr Olaffson is one of those Drs who will truly make a positive difference in the well being of his patients. His office staff and nurses were all friendly and courteous as well.

My aged-parent was a hospital patient of Dr. Olafsson this month. Dr. Olafsson was extremely professional, highly knowledgeable and skilled, compassionate and had excellent communication skills. He spent as much time with the patient and the patient's family as needed; he was willing to answer all questions. He communicated with the primary care physician in a very timely manner. All of us family members are extremely grateful to Dr. Olafsson for his skilled care and compassion. Based on our experiences with Dr. Olafsson, I would give him a superb recommendation!
