Specialties

Dr. Lopa Patel has the following 4 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.

  • 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.

  • 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.

I was looking for a pulmonologist and found Dr Patel to be in my area. It was a pleasant surprise when I called the office and was greeted by a courteous and patient receptionist who helped me through the process of getting setup for my first visit. After meeting Dr Patel I understand why her staff was so pleasant- she herself was extremely pleasant, professional, and found an answer to my long struggle with my health. I have seen other physicians, and no one could place their finger on what I needed to get back to a healthy place- she was a godsend. I highly recommend her to all. Excellent doctor and awesome staff - not always easy to find!

Abusive Receptionist is inexusible

Dr Patel should pay closer attention to the staff she hires, since they are representative of her. The woman who answers her phone is mentally unbalanced, abusive & incredibly rude. Shame on you, Dr Patel for allowing this.

If negative stars were an option that's what I would give this so called Doctor Hethal Petal. Please beware that this doctor has no compassion. She gave bad news and rushed through the session and seemed very agitated to answer simple questions. She was speaking very fast in medical language that I didn't understand and whenever I asked while she quickly speaking she just ignored and spoke over me not acknowledging my concerns. She has no compassion and should not be in the medical field. Heartless Doctor will be reporting her. One if the worst attitudes I've ever seen of any Doctor. I'm appalled unbelievable!!!
