Specialties

Dr. George J Profeta 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.

  • 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.

Not genuine

I am a former patient of another docter who retired and ended up with this doctor. I gave him a chance to see if it would be a good fit...but it was not. I found him to be disorganized and not compassionate at all. I am not returning to see this doctor.

Good experience

I am a long time patient who absolutely trusts Dr. Profeta. He is a very kind, knowledgeable physician who has always taken excellent care of my family. He takes time with his patients to ensure that you understand what is happening. I recommend him highly. One concern is that it is sometimes hard to get an appointment with this in-demand doctor.

Worst doctor

Doctor Profeta prescribed the same medication twice. Without even realizing it. After clearly the first medicine didn't work. He just wanted to send me for tests. He clearly had no idea what was wrong with me or what he was doing. And didn't want to help me after that. I explained what pain I was in. His staff were so rude and obnoxious. Not accommodating at all. This man has no compassion for his patients. I was clearly just a number!! I will never go back to this man. I ended up going to another doctor and he prescribed a different medicine. I was feeling better the very next day all symptoms of pain were gone. It was a simple diagnosis. It was a unbelievable experience.
