Specialties

Dr. Joseph E Thorpe 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.

  • 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.

Went to Dr Thorpe for years. Unfortunately doesn't take my insurance now or I'd still be there. He is the best of the best. Professional, expertise second to none. I attribute him to saving my life more than once. He is kind, empathetic and extremely intelligent leaving no stone unturned when caring for his patients. I've had to go to a different gp of pulmonoligists due to insurance change and I cannot even compare them to Dr Thorpe as there is none better. My level of trust in current provider is just not there. I'd recommend Dr. Thorpe and have often when asked, to my friends and family. He is a top notch Dr.
