Specialties

Dr. James Pohl has the following 3 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.

  • 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.

Crass and rude

Worst bedside manner I have ever experienced. Wanted to run all kinds of tests in ER though I came with a diagnosis already. Ridiculed me for arguing against them.

Doesn't communicate with patients...

This is by far one of the most unprofessional doctors offices I have ever dealt with. I left 2 voicemails in 2 weeks and never received a call back. I then called about 5 times in one day and finally got to speak to someone. I have never had such a difficult time with a doctors office. Also, no one ever called me back to schedule my sleep study. I had to call them several times just to schedule the appointment. I was not told any details about the study (what to show up with, time that it would last, etc.) I then waited over a month for my sleep study results. When I was doing the sleep study, I didn't sleep at all and wasn't offered a sleep aid. I am now having to transfer my records because I don't feel confident these people know what they're doing. I am extremely disappointed in my experience with this doctor. I wouldn't recommend him to anyone!

Dr. Pohl treated my son for asthma. After cutting the number of medicines my son took in half, and successfully continuing to improve my son's symptoms, Dr. Pohl then advoccated nonmedical interventions such as exercise to further reduce the asthma symptoms and improve breathing capacity and conditioning. My son has now been off asthma meds for several years and leads a very active life as an athlete, free of asthma. Thanks to Dr. Pohl for taking the time to talk to my son about healthy living habits and natural approaches to reducing symptoms and improving resilience to sinus allergies, and other triggers of asthma.
