Specialties

Dr. Rama L Nandipati has the following 2 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.

  • 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.

Great Dr., his office manager has a bad attitude.

Dr Nandipati was great, his office manager (Donna) is very discourteous and rude. After a disagreement with the her I was dropped as a patient.

An excellent doctor

I enthusiastically recommend Dr. Nandipati for his expertise and caring manner. I always feel that I am given sufficient time to present all of my concerns and to have all of my questions answered yet wait time to see the doctor is minimal. His office staff is efficient, professional, and caring. We are very fortunate to have a clinician of Dr. Nandipati's caliber in our community.
