Dr. Frank H Arlinghaus Jr 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.
- 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.
- 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.

It was a horrible, horrible experience when he came into my bedside at the hospital . It was the worst experience of my life listening to him for his 3 short visits. He painted the most dismal picture of my condition about a malignent tumor in my lung ..cancer cancer tumor malignant cancer was repeated over and over and over. I had my operation it was an infected absess that was removed not by him he was dead wrong..He gave me 2 panic attacks major depression and was the rudest person i have every met in my life even after I was dischared by 3 doctors...he shows up again in the morning on the day i was to be discharged spitting scrambled eggs I think all over me telling me that I am not out out the woods yet..the entire 3 times he came into my room he enjoyed himself and smiled like he was thriving on the misery he put through myself and my wife....he is a very sick mental case...my wifes 2 coworkers parents got up told him to leave immediately and checked out of the hospital in only a few minutes listening to him Meridian health care would be doing itself a huge benifit by firing him immediately
I found the Doctor to be a bit rushed but thorough, but his staff is another story. The person I dealt with, Leslie was very uncaring, rude. Needed an authorization for a test the doctor wanted, called for her to get it, gave her a week, also the hospital contacted her to no avail. Finally cancelled appoints and am finding a new doctor
