  • 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.

  • 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).

poor business practice

I waited 2 months to get in, my appointment was the day after Christmas at 3 pm. I put off my holiday plans with family so I would not miss my appointment. I arrived there and was told my appointment was cancelled. They asked if I could come back friday I said no I was going to visit family which I postponed due to my appointment. They said call when I get back. So I called and they offered me an appointment 2 months out again. I struggled for 2 months the first time and can't wait another 2 months. TERRIBLE SERVICE. and no compassion for peoples suffering.

Good Doctor, Poor support staff. I told the office manager I might seek a different doctor after She switched my appointment from the PA to Alfred. I presently have to see the the doctor 1x/year for medicare followup on the c pap machine. When I complained about the longer wait times to see Alfred for a 10 minute visit she became offensive and rude. Shortly after I got a letter stating he was releasing me as a patient. This after 3yrs of service. I am astonished by their eagerness to diss a patient. 1 1/2 years ago they messed up my cpap machine order a nd caused a long delay. The nurse and staff also gave me the run around then, when I questioned the delay.

Very displeased with billing dept. Received a letter stating that Dr services no longer available to me. Some how I had $112 balance due. Office manager Refused to take my payment said she turned it over to a collection agency and then refused to tell me whom I would need to speak with. I did not even revive 1 phone call from the office staff nor was I ever told about the bill when I was seen in office.... Really?

I WILL NEVER GO BACK THERE!!!!

I went to Dr. Alfred's office as a new patient. I was on time and ready for my appointment. When I handed the receptionist my insurance cards she said that my Tricare said prime on it and that they had to turn me away. Even though I told her that I was under the standard Tricare she arguing with me and insisted that it was prime. I still had Medicare Part A/B. Even still she did not even bother to call Tricare to verify that I had Tricare (Standard). Even the other lady that was standing there said with a smart remark unless you show us a card that says other than prime we cannot accept it. I even said can you call Tricare. They refused. The doctor was standing right there as well and did not even say anything. I went to call the office manager only to find out the other lady was the office manager. I even said that she was unprofessional that she couldn't even call Tricare. She responded with Sir I think your old enough to be able to handle your own healthcare. So to add one last thing keep in mind they did this to a man who was wearing an Iraqi Freedom Veteran hat on. Yes I served in Iraq from the start in 2003-2004, I have Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, Tramatic Brain Injury, Spinal Fusion to my L5-S1 from a grenade blast. I recently in Sept 2004 had a heart attack at the age of 44 and I was still having chest pain so they set an appointment with Dr. Alfred's Office. I WILL NEVER GO BACK THERE!!!
