Specialties

Dr. Keith M Clance 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.

  • Internal Medicine

    An internist is a physician who focuses on the diagnosis and treatment of conditions that affect the adult population—both acute and chronic.
    These doctors are often who adults see as their primary physicians because they treat a broad range of illnesses that do not require surgical or specialist interventions. They also work to help a patient maintain optimal health in order to prevent the onset of disease.
    In addition to treating the common cold and flu, internists also treat chronic diseases like diabetes and heart disease.

Does not listen to his patients.... at all !!!

Keith Clance (in my opinion) is the "Charles Emerson Winchester" (M*A*S*H) of pulmonology. He does not listen to his patients or their primary physicians. After 5 visits I repeatedly found him to be pompous and arrogant while ignoring serious health complaints. He believed that a single PFT was the bible of how my lungs should always function (every minute of every day), thus exacerbating my condition of severe emphysema. He actually became rude and angry when I refused to continue taking his prescribed steroids due to having serious side-effects from them.I have since found a pulmonologist that actually listens to me (instead of himself) and after looking over my CT scans and x-rays, told me that the steroids for COPD (that Clance was prescribing) have proven not to benefit someone with as much lung damage as I have. Clance's notes always differed greatly from the facts of the quick 5-10 minute (in-and-out) visits (with little to no examination given). I now find it impossible to trust any pulmonologist through Lebauer Healthcare after my mis-treatment from Keith Clance.
