Specialties

Dr. Jihad G Youssef 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.

  • 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.

Misdiagnosis, no testing

He looked at me, did not do any tests, misdiagnosed me with something that could have been ruled out with a blood test and said I needed to come to his sleep clinic. I told him I slept fine and would not go and he got angry. He missed that is was cancer and in time it got worse and spread. I found him rude and arrogant. I finally went to another doctor who immediately found the cancer. I lost valuable time because of Youssef and the cancer spread. Later, another doctor checked on the misdiagnosis with a blood test and said no, I never had what Youssef said I had.

One Star

I only saw him once in the hospital. He was very rude. He would not listen to me, just wanted to give his opinion and walked out of the room. I would never seek him out as my doctor.

Two Stars

Rude, incompetent staff. No sense of urgency in a semi-critical situation! Poor bedside manner, doesn't listen, rushes through appointments! Office is dusty and smells moldy. GO TO TUCSON FOR PULMONARY TREATMENT!!

Would Not Recommend

He has a poor bedside manner. I never saw him smile or be friendly. He seemed rushed. He was condescending when I asked him questions and would not take the time to answer them. He kept wanting me to do a sleep study even when I told him I don't have difficulty sleeping or any complaints during sleep. I went to Tucson and saw a real doctor who was much more knowledgeable and patient.
