Dr. Rameen M Miarrostami 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.

I have been going to Dr. Miarrostami for 19 years, since I was 26. The reason why I have stayed with him even after moving to Long Island is his bedside manner. He never is too busy to answer all of my questions and concerns and is a very caring doctor. His knowledge truly is just the bonus!!!! You can't find many doctors with the customer service type of attitude that Dr. Miarrostami has!!!
I've been a patient of Dr. Miarrostami's since 1997. He is an excellent doctor. He really listens to your symtoms and complaints, isn't quick to over prescribe unecessary medications or tests, really excellent. Unfortunately, I won't be returning to him because of his medical staff. In addition to arriving for appointments (which were confirmed by his staff) only to find that he had left for the day, waiting 4 days for someone to call in a refill for a prescription (and getting scolded for following up), I was just greeted by the RUDEST woman on the phone (atr his newest location in Park Slope) who told me that if I wanted to make an appointment, leave a message or get a refill called in, I needed to call back on another day. Glad I wasn't dying, or anything. I'd love to say this was a new dynamic, but they've almost alway been awful (with the odd exception) and I've always dreaded calling the office for any reason. It's unfortunate that he surrounds himself with such incompetants, because he is an excellent physician.
