Dr. Raj K Gupta has the following 3 specialties
- Anatomic Pathology
- 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 suffered from excessive day time sleepiness for some time and went to see Dr. Gupta. He diagnose my condition right away and arranged my sleep study immediately. After the sleep study he loaned me CPAP right away and I did not have to wait several week for my insurance to approve CPAP. This was above and beyond what I expected.
I would NEVER recommend this doctor to anyone; not even my worst enemy. I was initially thought to have a sleep disorder and was sent for an MSLT. I later found out that the results were false due to unfit conditions (lights on, noisy, blinds open, given coffee by nurse the morning of). Additionally, Dr. Gupta sent me for the study knowing that the medication I was on would hinder my results, making an accurate diagnosis impossible, which I later found out. Dr. Gupta diagnosed me with a life-altering condition without having solid data. He did not carry out the protocol that someone with a medical degree should adhere to. The doctor was flat out negligent. Not to mention, he put me on amphetamines without even knowing for sure what I had! After several months of being on medication that was not working and learning that my symptoms were not improving, I began to question the doctor. He had no answers for me and began to retrace his steps. He started performing tests that should have been done prior to putting me on medication. The lack of professionalism was appalling. I was sitting in the examination room when the doctor told me he would return in a few minutes. Since I was right across the hall from his office, I heard the doctor fumbling through his files, huffing and puffing, cussing to himself, and finally, after waiting nearly twenty minutes, Dr. Gupta returned with no answers for me. He simply upped the dosage of my medication, and said see you in a month. During me next follow up, the doctor requested that I wear a sleep monitor on my arm for a week to view my sleep patterns. After obtaining the results, Dr. Gupta told me that I had irregular sleep patterns, advised that I regulate my sleep schedule, took me completely off the amphetamines that he had me taking for nearly six months, and retracted the diagnosis he initially gave me! He showed no remorse or emotion and actually smiled while telling me this information. The doctor stated that my MSLT was inconclusive since the medication I was on at the time actually kept me awake. So why bother doing the study knowing that it would not provide solid evidence? Not to mention, I was put on dangerous medication that could potentially harm you if taken when not needed. You would hope a practicing doctor would know such a thing...Do yourself a favor, and go see a specialist from NYU or Colombia. Dr. Gupta's shenanigans are not worth your time or troubles.
