Dr. Jerry S Reedy has the following 2 specialties
- 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.
- 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.

Dr. Reddy while pleasant enough only ran PFTs and tried to make me think that Singular and a rescue inhaler were what i should do for shortness of breath. He failed to order a sleep study which showed my O2 level to be 88% when i am sleeping -- which is why i was so tired during the day. He also failed to follow through with several other complaints i had. After a year of getting nowhere with him and my former internist, I found new drs who have ordered several tests all of which have shown problems - which is why i need nighttime O2. All of this could have been taken care of a year ago had he and his staff not been so rude, and so quick to dismiss me and my symptoms.
I am a patient of Dr Jerry Reedy's. I have been going to him for several years now. As far as I know, his specialties remain the same, because his address and phone number are the same. He diagnosed my sleep apnea and I now use a CPAP machine, for which I am extremely grateful!I don't know what other information you need. He is a very good doctor - patient, kind, inquiring as a doctor should be. He treats me with respect and, if he is not available (as once happened to me), I saw another doctor at that clinic who was also extremely good. I have never had, nor do I now have any problems with Dr Jerry Reedy or any others at his clinic.
