Specialties

Dr. James R Snapper 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.
    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.

S. Niles

Dr Snapper is a very caring doctor. He doesn't give you the standard 5-minute rush/here's a script/see ya next time treatment.He treats as well as cares. Out of the eight Pulmonologists that I've had during my three-year pulmonary issue, he's one of my top three favorites.

Professional and Compassion

Dr. Snapper has been our 97 year old grandmother's pulmonologist for about a year now. Never have we experienced a medical professional that shows such compassion for a patient. His communication skills and accessibility amazes our family. We are grateful and blessed to have him as part of her medical team.

Concerning my husband the man with complications from the red cross

Dr. Snapper is absolutely the BEST dr i have ever encountered! I have a been a nurse for 12 years and he is definiatly a true class act. I have never felt so comfortable and confident in what a dr has said. Not one time did my husband or myself feel rushed or as if we were wasting his time. He was so personable and knowledgeable. I have nothing but the best to say about him.
