Dr. Harmohinder S Kochar has the following 4 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.

  • 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.

Terrible Staff!

I have gone to this clinic for 20 years. I love my current doctor, Melendez and I don't want to lose him but the office staff is so incapable of doing their jobs. I have been cancelled more times than a postage stamp and I'm done. This the second time they have cancelled back to back appointments and refuse to inconvenience someone else and give me a decent appointment. I'd say they have so many patients that they don't need me anymore. The last time they cancelled back to back appointments, I ended up in the hospital with pneumonia. And that's not the only appointments they cancel. They have cancelled almost every appointment and rescheduled them for years. Stick a fork in me, I'm done.

I've only had first visit. Appt. was at 2:30. I arrived at 2:08. Saw Dr. about 4:00. I forgot to complain to him, but I will next time, esp. if it happens again. When we were done, he walked out & closed the door then about 5 mins. later a nurse opened the door & said "oh! we're done, hun," as if I was supposed to know. I didn't understand why the dr. closed the door if I was supposed to just leave. Other than those 2 little things, the visit was fine. Everyone was very friendly, including Dr. Kochar. I've yet to get medical results.

Horrible experience. No bedside manner. No explanation of what to expect. Had to guess what was going on. Would take days for him to visit while in the hospital. No personality.
