Dr. Nashat H Rabadi has the following 2 specialties
- 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.

I have to say, I thought this doctor to be outstanding at one point. What has occurred now is his receptionists truly run the roost. I had a very serious diagnosis and kept calling to try to see him. The secretary made all sorts of excuses and then said it is only two more weeks. He is swamped after his vacation. Then, the doctor listens to a primary who is wet behind the ears that I saw another pulmonologist earlier. I was scared and needed to be seen. She dropped the ball as well. What happened to being able to get second opinions. Then it is a breech in practice and the doctor drops you. Also called him after hours and it took three times of me calling for him to return the call. Excellent doctor, but missing the important elements due to volume of patients. This group is becoming a cattle call, where you are separated into little cubicles waiting to see the physician. This is science fiction becoming reality.
I was having breathing, coughing and lung problems because of smoking. The Dr. did not yell at me or tell me to quit but he did advise what smoking was doing to my lungs. He explained about a breathing test he would give me and went over the results very thoroughly in his office. He gave me samples of inhalators which I really did not need to use as my breathing was not that bad. He was very kind and very easy to communicate with and took a thorough history. At all appointments I have seen him, not a nurse or physician assistant. Highly recommend.
Dr Rabadi, spent time listening to me from the very first visit. I had several lung issues, and only later would be diagonised with a rare infection. His care and process of eliminating possible cause(s) was outstanding, bed side manner second to none. I would highly recommend him.
