Specialties

Dr. Richard R Durham 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 would never reccomend this doctor to anybody.He did not explain my disease fully and did not explain the risk that my employment posed to worsen my condition.

Exceptional follow-up

When Dr. Durham was told that a local hospital had informed us that medical scans re conditions not under his management were not available on discs, he quickly secured the discs for my wife. When Dr. Durham learned of an operative proceedure to be performed in another city on my wife, he had his nurse call me amd warn that sleep apnea was resulting in low blood oxygen saturations during sleep. I asked his nurse to please send that information to the surgeon. When the anesthesiologist interviewed my wife and I, he was made aware of Dr. Durham's communication. He said the information was valuable and appreciated and he said he would read Dr. Durham's communication in full, before the operation. The operation went very well - my wife was released the day after surgury and the condition necessitating the operation is fully relieved.

Look For Someone Better!

Very dry personality and not willing to listen. Spent about 5 minutes with me and didn't examine me during either visit. Feel like I wasted my time and money.
