Dr. Mentesinot Woldeyohannes 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.

I have been seeing Dr. Woldejohannes for nearly 20 years, and I highly recommend him. He truly takes the time to listen to my concerns and address them. I saw him for the first time when I needed to get in for a visit at the last-minute, but my regular doctor wasn't available. I switched and made him my primary doctor after he accurately diagnosed and resolved a recurring medical issue that I had been seeing the other doctor for for several years. I have never felt rushed, and rarely have I waited for him in the exam room for more than 5 or 6 minutes (if that).
I went to this Dr. not believing the one negative review on this site, but when I had my appointment, I could believe the things the woman on here said are true. The Doctor was nice to me, but very impatient with his staff in front of me. THe office told me my that my appointment would only last 30 minutes, and I wouldn't have minded the very lengthy extra time he took if I didn't end up being late for my work AND if he had used some common sense during my appointment. He did effectively treat my bronchial cough (which EVERYONE was having from the flu) with an antibiotic. Unfortunately, he did a huge amount of unnecessary tests for symptoms I was not even experiencing. I told him a few times that I had been feeling exhausted and that my period had stopped. He never thought to order a pregnancy test in my blood work, nor told me to get one if my period had still not started within a few days. I called my OB and got the test done through them, and the result was positive for pregnancy. I called and told the office that the reason my cycle had stopped was (duh), I was pregnant. THe Dr. or the nurses never called to to congratulate or to follow up with my initial visit.
I have been this man's patient for over 20 years when he first joined the practice. He has always been above board professional, helpful and caring. He has always gone out of my way to make myself and other family members that went to him comfortable and cares deeply about our health. I love the man and he will be missed when retired.
Dr. Woldeyohannes has been my physician for 5 years. There is an in office lab, so it saves me an extra trip to a lab for blood work. I have never minded waiting for an appointment because the office is comfortable, and located in a beautifully treed park; and I know that if I am waiting it is because the Doctor is giving his time to patients, and when it is my turn, I get full attention to my questions. I never feel as if Dr.'s or staff are trying to make a quota. English is Dr. W's third or fourth language; he understands me perfectly and I have learned to understand his accent. He is compassionate,thorough and takes my concerns seriously. I have family who also see Dr. Woldeyohannes and was especially glad to have him through our Mother's extended illness and hospitalization. He really helped us understand and communicate with specialists.
I have seen this doctor for 4 yrs, since my doc in the same office died. He still does not know my name and calls me by another woman's name. Yes I corrected him for 2 yrs before I gave up and ignored it. He does not like to be questioned. He gets frazzled easily. He's always running behind, so he has to hurry through your appt. Can't really understand him to well...his English heavily accented. Don't ask and he wont get mad. He is correct, even when he tells you to break a capsule in 2 to reduce the dose.He actually told me that he did not care if the medicine was helping me, I was not taking it correctly. Although, he prescribed it that way about 3 yrs ago???? Then he told me "Don't argue with me or find another doctor. How much do you want 20 or 40 mg?" I said 40 and then he slammed his receiver down and hung up on me. NO Bedside Manner!
