Dr. Ghassan L Wardeh has the following 3 specialties
- Sleep Medicine
A sleep medicine specialist is specially trained in diagnosing and treating disorders involving sleep.
Sleep disorders such as sleep apnea, restless leg syndrome and insomnia are very common and can often cause other serious health issues, such as depression, asthma, and migraines. Sleep medicine specialists often work in sleep centers where they observe a patient while sleeping and monitor brain waves, behavior, and vital signs in order to identify the causes of sleep disturbance, or an inability to sleep (insomnia).
Sleep medicine specialists treat patients through advising on sleep hygiene, providing cognitive behavioral therapy, using light therapy, or medical sleep aides.
- 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.

Riverside Medical Group, Maywood NJ- He and Riverside staff make you wait in the patients room for about an hour, i come to Dr. Wardeh hoping for him to answer my questions and listen to me. All he said is I drink too much coffee and I dont know how to use my inhaler. He TOLD ME why dont you try smoking maybe it will help you. Cruel doctor or his jokes are cruel. He really doesnt care about his patients and clearly wont find the best help for you or listen to you. Do not waste your money.
The first time I went into the office I was examined prescribed medication then the Dr. left the room. I turned to the nurse asking her were the doctor went she said he left. I asked her what did he diagnose me with she said she didn't know, and asked me if I wanted to talk to the Dr. I said to her are you kidding me of course. When he came in he gave me the diagnoses and I new he was wrong. I pretty much had a feeling what I had. There are things that are pretty much common sense, and you don't need a degree to diagnose. The 2nd time I came back telling him that the medication he prescribed isn't working. He checked me again and sure enough he diagnosed me with what I already new I had. Pretty scary knowing your putting your life in a professionals hands and they pretty much could careless. The sad thing is there are so many Dr.'s out there like that.
