Specialties

Dr. James M Parish 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.

  • 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.

Not in the traditon of Mayo

My wife seen Dr Parish a few times. He has not been able to find what is wrong with her and takes a passive approach. They thought it was Valley Fever, later aspirated pneumonia, now BOOP all the while the PET scans are looking worst. Without a real diagnosis they do not hesitate on a 3 month course of diflucan or a year in prednisone 60mg 2twice a day!.This is a devasteting high doze with MANY side effects (on par as taking chimo). All the while no VAT and direct effort to get a diagnosis. This not like Mayo, they have lost their edge.

A doctor who actually takes the time to learn about you and your medical issue.

I saw Dr. Parish twice regarding a pulmonary issue. With virtually no waiting time (a nice feature I have found in going to Mayo), he arrived at the exam room and proceeded to get a thorough history from me, asking and answering a lot of questions. Total time spent learning about my medical issue and discussng next steps wih me? 82 minutes! That's right - it's not a typo. Nearly an hour and a half. Outside of a social situation, I can't recall the last time a doctor spent that much time with me. I was impressed by his attentiveness, his knowledge, and overall professionalism.
