Dr. Maria G Rappai 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.

I have a history of pulmonary embolisms. When I developed blood clots in my leg I went to the office. I saw a nurse practitioner and she said the clot was in a superficial vein and not to worry. She told me that this vein will intersect with a deep vein above my knee and if the clot were high on my leg it would become serious. The clots continued to Pop up higher on my leg and i contacted the office several times to tell them. I was always put through to a nurse named Brad who gave the impression he did not understand my situation. When the clots started to pop above my knee and I expressed concern, he said "well you aren't going to drop dead just because it is above your knee". I asked if i could go back on blood thinner and he finally agreed but offered no other assistance. I accepted that no one was listening to me and finally sought the help of a vein doctor. He saw my ultra sound and immediately scheduled a procedure to stop the clots from growing. He said I had a clot 4" from the deep vein intersection. The clot was about to hit the expressway to my heart and lungs. Thank God I didn't accept what Rappai's staff was telling me. Otherwise I doubt I would have lived to see Thanksgiving. Brad was hard to get on the phone And when he did call back, he was rude and it was apparent that I was bothering them. Seek another Pulminologist if you need one.
she doesn't follow up with patients. had to call her to order test.they forgot to schedule one test then no one call let me know when other test was.she doesn't call you with results either her assistant does .I'm paying to see her talk to her not her assistant no matter how nice he is.I'm looking for another dr.now
I went to the Madison branch, I would not advise anyone to go there. I was lied to by the office personnel. I have not gotten my results and it has been three weeks. Horrible experience, good thing it was not an emergency. The doctor I found out works at Baptist and I guess she does this on the side.
