Dr. Reinerio Linares-Mera has the following 3 specialties
- 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).
Sleep medicine specialists treat patients through advising on sleep hygiene, providing cognitive behavioral therapy, using light therapy, or medical sleep aides.
- 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.

Patient for life!

I have been a patient of Dr. Linares before he started his own practice and have always been satisfied with my experiences. He takes his time to listen to me and never makes me feel like I'm just a number by rushing in and out. Yes he sometimes runs behind but that's because he cares about each and every patient he sees. His office manager Ruthie is fabulous! She always makes you feel important and also listens to your needs. I would not think of going anywhere else.
Absolute WORST office staff I have ever encountoured
Self-verified patient of Dr. Reinerio Linares-Mera - Posted on December 10th, 2018
Office is supposedly 9 am to 5 pm called at 3:50pm and was asked to call back in 10 min. only to find out that office staff had turned phone over to the answering service only to have them explain that staff was having high phone call volume and were busy and I'd have to call the next morning. Although it was 4:10 pm and office doesn't close until 5 pm. Office staff have promised to mail our SD card to us within two days and we have had to call and remind them several times only to receive our SD card 2 months after promised. Arrived for an appt. first thing in the morning only to find office staff had lost key to office and was sitting outside office in hallway and I had to wait 45 min. for Dr. to arrive. Although being the first patient scheduled for the day the office was already running 45, actually 50 minutes late for my appt. and for any other patients coming in. Staff is never available when you call I am always asked to call back at a later time. Office is completely understaffed and needs major training regarding how a reputable office is run. If your gonna run a reputable practice at least hire a competent staff! Absolutely the worst office I have ever been a part of. The other two members of my family who also go to this office completely agree. Will be looking for a new Dr.'s office ASAP.
Slow office staff
