  • 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.

Absolute best..

Relaxed and organized office environment. Pleasant, competent staff. Short wait to be seen. Unhurried examination. Accurate diagnosis with information sharing. Limited office hours, but when a patient needs contact, Dr. Hatcher responds by phone in a timely manner. Dr. Hatcher provides ongoing care for my asthma control. This summer I experienced a difficult-to-resolve episode with my asthma, but was able to regain control with the good doctor's expertise and resolve to restore my health. I have been a patient for a number of years, and I know that I am in very competent hands. What more could a patient want?
