Specialties

Dr. Peter M Barkin has the following 3 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.

  • 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.

Frustrated

The most surly, rude, arrogant unprofessional office staff on the planet. After erroneously insisting that doc's practice does not accept my insurance - tho I had verified via phone and on-line and even had an insurance call the office with follow-up confirmation that doc's practice is indeed in my insurer's network - receptionist refused to make appointment and then passed me along to another hostile female who had the unprofessional, unmitigated gall to HANG UP ON ME!!!! Steer clear of this zoo!

Poor attention to detail

This Dr miss diagnosed for 6-12 months and never paid attention to details on what was going on with the patient. Had he listened 6-12 months earlier he could have saved a life. I would consult a second opinion if Dr Barkin makes off like nothing is wrong when you visit.
