Dr. Jalil E Ahari 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.<br>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.

I'VE HAD DR. AHARI FOR THE PAST 3 YEARS ALMOST 4 AND I WONDER HOW HE IS ABLE TO SIT AND EXPLAIN IN DETAIL TO ALL HIS PATIENTS AS HE DOES ME. HIS BEDSIDE MANNER IS TO BE COPIED AND GIVEN TO ALOT OF DOCTORS. I WAS HOPSITALIZED ONCE AND ALTHOUGH ONE OF HIS COLLEGEUES TREATED ME HE DID NOT TELL DR. AHARI WAS IN THE HOSPITAL, HE WAS NOT HAPPY. THE NEXT TIME I WAS HOSPITALIZED THROUGH ER, HE MADE A POINT TO VISIT ME EVERY MORNING BEFORE GOING TO HOSPITAL. THIS WAS AT GW HE FOLLOWED MY CASE THROUGH THE STAY AND, AS HIS PATIENT STILL DOES, I RESPECT AND ADMIRE DR AHARI, I THINK WE HAVE A GREAT RELATIONSHIP. IT IS NOW TIME TO BE HONEST WITH HIM, FOR I HAVE NOT DONE ALL THAT HE HAS INSTRUCTED.
