    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.

One of the best doctors I have ever had the privilege of meeting. He is both compassionate and a man of his word. He calls his patients back personally and takes the time to answer questions.

Not one of the best Cf drs. Along with Joe Pilewski theres no one better,!

Dr. Weinberg has been my dr since age 18. I'm now ,,34. He's so well respected and deservingly so. I find it funny however when hospital staff are intimidated and nervous in his presence. Hes by far one of the most intelligent and compassionate men I have been blessed to meet, but hes also so down to earth. He spends most of my clinic appts taking turns making funof me with my fiancee. I know this is so selfish of me, but i never want him to retire. I truly love and admire the man. It would be a sad and scary world without people like him who dedicate their whole lives taking care of sick people. FYI I also get calls from CF staff when not caring for myself properly. What other drs and nurses care enough to do that?

I have Cystic Fibrosis and Joel has been my doctor for 15 years!!

Jol Weinberg is one of the best CF doctors in the nation!! He has been an adult CF doctor longer then anyother CF doctor. He is a wonderful person and doctor. However to say he has good bedside manner is a long shot!!! He and I have grown very close over the years and we can say just about anything to eachother. He calls me if I miss appointments and tells me he has a few 4 letter words for me. He calls me names and has told me how stupid I am on several occations!!! lol However, he has always been there for me and has saved my life 2 times. I am here because of Joel Weinberg and I can honestly say I love the man and don't know what I would do without him. I know for a fact I wouldn't be here today. If you have CF and are looking for a doctor there is no better doctor then Joel Weinberg!!! You just have to be willing to laugh at yourself and him from time to time!!!!
