Specialties

Dr. Khalid M Eltawil has the following 2 specialties

  • 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.

  • 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.

Professional

He's has poor bed side manners and is not understanding or patient and will disagree and discourage you in making family decisions and he's very manipulative and is more concerned about saving the hospital and insurance $$$ than enhancing your life and well being.He's not loyal and is not on your side and he's too quick to place judgment and does not listen attentively to,your family concerns. He's quick to get you out even if your not in good health -his idea philosophy is to make money and not to help you. He's not professional and is not discrete and his appearance and attire is shabby and disheveled which said a lot about him as a person. He is inhumane and lacks empathy and compassion for his patients. He is absolutely unprofessional and is not prompt to return calls when an emergency is required. His experience and accurate prognosis is poor and misdiagnosed. He does simply a doctor who practices basic day to day routine without having to extend or go out of the norm.

Only in it for the reimbursements...stay away!

After several office visits and a cumbersome and invasive overnight sleep study that resulted in a sleep apnea diagnosis, Dr Eltawill suggested I come back for a two day sleep study. I am still trying to get him to help me out with a perscription for a CPAP device, which he stubbornly deines me!
