Specialties

Dr. Louis R Depalo has the following 3 specialties

  • 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.

  • 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.

Thank you... I am alive today because of you.

I am now 12 years cancer free of lung cancer for which I thank Dr. Depalo. My case had some unusual "glitches" which he latched on to; correcting the wrong diagnosis (i.e; left lung, not the right, written up as having the tumor)... and, prescribing the removal of my lower left lobe to prevent any possible "floating" cancer cells into other areas. His bedside manners were exceptional, especially as other "issues" arose after surgery. He and his recommended surgeon (unfortunately I am not certain of his name so will not submit) came together in my best interest (rather than their convenience) at the time to expedite the follow-up surgery, after what was thought to be a non-malignant biopsy. I thank both as I live cancer free and enjoy my three grandchildren to date... 6, 7, and 11. He and his team are exceptional. God Bless them.

A Brilliant, Careful Healer & Physician

Dr. Depalo's care and treatment of my Mother was beyond exemplary. He diagnosed what 6 others had failed to see and was careful & clear in explaining all aspects of treatment & expectations. He took time to explain everything clearly and to hear our worries and concerns. He is a true healer & a brilliant, caring man. I've never met another physician with more clarity & kindness.
