Specialties

Dr. Juan C Barriga 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.

Sarcoidosis Treatment Was Fantastic

Dr. Barriga was very concerned about me when I first went to see him. He quickly discovered my problem and began treating me. I have been in remission for over 1 year and have not had any other problems. His office staff will call you to remind you about your appointments and work with you on scheduling. Dr. Barriga makes sure you understand your condition and gives you hope that with the proper diagnosis and treatment there is a great possibility of recovery. I was careful to follow his treatment plan and take my medication (which I don't have to take anymore) to put my sarcoidosis in remission. I had a very rewarding and delightful experience with this doctor.

The best doctor I've ever seen

Dr. Barriga is perhaps the most friendly and caring doctor I have ever meet, and I 100% disagree with any of the negative comments that others have posted here, as they have nowhere NEAR described the experience that we have had with him! He is treating my wife for the past 3 months as she is battling lung cancer, and he has gone out of his way to see her when she was admitted in the hospital, and to get her in quickly during office visits as he is well aware of the constant pain that she is in. He has the best bedside manner of any doctor I have ever met, and he takes his time to explain things for us to make sure that we understand what's going on. Heck, he gives her a hug "hello" and a hug "goodbye" every time we see him! I am personally offended by anyone who says that is is a "horrible, uncaring doctor" because that simply does NOT accurately describe this man! I highly recommend Dr. Barriga to ANYONE needing a Pulmonologist!

He is a horrible, uncaring doctor

He was unable to give us clear answers about any of the test ran on my mother. He was rude and condescending when I was trying to ask him questions
