About Dr. Jacques R Conaway MD
Dr. Jacques R Conaway has 2 locations
301 Hospital Dr
Glen Burnie, MD 21061
Dr. Jacques R Conaway 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.
- 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.

Things Started Off Really Good
Self-verified patient of Dr. Jacques R Conaway - Posted on September 18th, 2018
I saw Dr. Conaway for a second opinion regarding potential sleep apnea. IS bedside manner was great and he spent a considerable amount of time with me going over my medical history. Dr. Conaway decided to order a sleep study and said we'd talk once the results were in. Fast forward to the sleep study, everything went as planned, however, it took almost 3 weeks for the results to come in, which is the fault of the sleep centers, however, his front desk staff showed little interest in helping to figure out why it was taking so long. The sleep center finally called me and said the results were in, but I'd have to talk to Dr. Conaway to get the final report. I called back to Dr. Conaway's office asking for him to give me a call to discuss the results and figure out the next steps. After several days (and several follow-up calls) one of the techs in the office called with the results, however, he was unable to answer any of my questions. I eventually called back to the office and asked if Dr. Conaway himself could please give me a call so we could figure out the next steps (the results defied his expectations, which we discussed at my first appointment). He receptionist quickly responded that he does not call patients and that I would have to come in for another appointment. Really.......As someone who works in healthcare and has managed several large practices, this is one of the craziest things I have ever heard. If our physicians refused to return patient calls they would be in hot water. That said, I by no means was asking for a telephone appointment, but just simply wanted to ask a few follow-up questions. Like most people, I work during the week, which can make it difficult to schedule multiple doctors appointments. If Dr. Conaway called and answered my questions and then said I'd like to see you again, I would have obliged, however, I'm not going to take time off from work to come in and review test results that I've already been made aware of. Long story short, this is simply unprofessional and not how patients should be treated. Ultimately, the receptionist said she would take the message but literally told me to not get my hopes up that he would call. Unfortunately, I have invested too much time and effort into this sleep study so I have no choice but to keep playing this game with his office.
