Dr. Michael J Flintrop 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 never been to a specialist in my life that would not come into the room to discuss my cat scan his assistant kept leaving the room to see what he wanted to do ....I don't spend my money and time to talk to someone else plus he didn't agree what the cat scan determined when I had a copy of the scan which determined that I had a very active Sarcoidoius not sure of the spelling doesn't matter it is a disease of the Lung but I got no response from him. I will never recommend him to any one . He has just given me a bad taste in my mouth . I hope I will be able to find one that really cares about their patients!!!!!
