Dr. Frederick S Tackey 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.

I liked him

I was impressed with this doctor. After firing another pulmonary doctor, my allergist recommend Dr. Tackey. He was able to sort out a diagnosis for me that made sense to me. I live in Florida part of the year and will be out of the area for about 3 months. He said if I need anything to give them a call while I am out of state. Lately you are lucky to get 5 minutes with your doctor. Dr. Tackey spent at least 30 minutes, taking history and examining. I felt a good rapport. Doc patient rapport is so lacking in medicine today and it is so very important.

The Doctor was great. Staff seemed very non-friendly and if you do not speak English fluently you feel discriminated against and also if you need any scans or test done and need approval from your insurance provider do it your self the staff is no help at all . States it takes two weeks call my insurance got approval and a confirmation number to schedule the appointments on my own.
