Specialties

Dr. Linas F Vaitkus 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.

Had a 9AM appointment and waited over two hours to see the doctor for my initial visit - one hour in the waiting room and one hour in the exam room. There was no explanation given for why it took so long. When I went to schedule the follow up, I asked for the first appointment in the morning to avoid another two hour wait. I was told 9AM is the earliest appointment available, and when I pointed out that my last appointment was the first one of the day and he was still two hours late, I was told "Well, that's how it goes sometimes" I will not be returning if that is how the doctor and his staff interact with the patients.
