Specialties

Dr. Howard D Diener 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.

excellent, excellent, excellent and caring

After dealing with "some of the DR's in this area, it was refreshing to actually meet with a Dr who actually cares for the patient more than the "holy insurance Co's". Even tho the news was not the best to be received by us his caring and positive manner raised up our morale and hopes.

false information

was given a review of my visit, detailing what was done and discussed, which was completely false and misleading.i will never go back and will not recommend this facility.

Doctor's Response

nonspecific complaint. ALL patients are given the opportunity to ask questions and take whatever time is needed so that when my patients leave the office, they understand all aspects of their care.
