Dr. Paul Mayo has the following 3 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.
- 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.
- 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.

This is a follow up to my previous post about Dr. Mayo. My sister was a patient of his at Long Island Jewish Hospital in PCU and ICU. Because of her age (73) she was considered from the beginning expendable. I was diagnosed shortly after her death with advanced TB. My sister who had the same symptoms and was left undiagnosed and untreated for TB at LIJ obviously died of the contragious disease at ICU. The incompetence of Dr. Mayo and his interns is unexcusable and has put many people including other patents and staff at risk. This kind of behavior is both unacceptable and very risky.
Dr. Paul Mayo's lack of supervision of his staff directly led to the death of my sister. I believe his license should be revoked because of what transpired. Beware of the Pulmonary Department at Long Island Jewish Hospital. It is time that Dr. Mayo takes accountability for the actions of his interns in particular.
Paul Mayo is tops in his field, his only problem is allowing others less qualified to treat his paitent, harming the paitent both physicaly and mentally, when he had the authority to prevent the actions in the first place.He could have done much better. A year later the paitent is still suffering the affects of his non action.
