Specialties

Dr. Gerald C Smaldone 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.

Zero bedside manner

Told my sister that they were moving my dying mother to "comfort care" because...and I quote...."we need the bed"(in ICU).It's best that I wasn't there to hear that.

Took the HARD case where others puched it off

Took my case on even though I am a Cancer patient at MSKCC. He reviewed all my reports and made his diagnoses and he was right the first time, which MSK was having trouble figuring out what to do. Thank s

Dr. Smaldone helped my husband who had suffered for 10 years from chronic cough. Dr. Smaldone prescribed medications that stopped my husband's incessant coughing and improved the quality of his life immensely. After seeing several doctors, Dr. Smaldone was the one who helped him the most.
