Specialties

Dr. Jigme M Sethi 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.

  • 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.

  • 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.

Total Confidence!

Dr. Sethi was wonderful! He was thorough and very knowledgeable and made me feel at ease. He ordered the proper diagnostics. Taking the results into consideration he referred me to a pulmonology surgeon who was also excellent in his field. I was very saddened to learn that Dr. Sethi left Miriam Hospital to continue his practice in Tennesse. I had total confidence in his care.

Very Knowledgeable and Willing to Answer Questions

I saw Dr. Sethi for a presurgical clearance. This could have been just a "cut & dried formality", but the doctor was far more thorough and helpful. He explained some of the reasons for my previous problems with anesthesia and made several specific recommendations for my surgeon and anesthetist in my upcoming operations. After his evaluation and explanation, I feel much more confident going into this surgery. Both he and his staff were very pleasant and helpful, they verified medical information from other sources, and made sure that when I left the office I had a printed copy of my medical notes. I was so favorably impressed with this doctor and his staff that I have made arrangements to continue care with him for my pulmonary issues.

One Star

Dr. Sethi was incompetent, rude, unprofessional, impulsive, the staff did not like him, and our family had him removed from my father's case. He caused his death. I would not let this "doctor" treat my dog.
