Specialties

Dr. Richard M Shoup 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.

  • 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.

  • 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.

Shoup couldn't care less. Stay away.

Shoup performed a sleep study on me and diagnosed me with severe sleep apnea and prescribed a CPAP machine. The machine did not work properly and the provider was not helpful in repairing it. At the time I was getting 8 - 9 hours of sleep a day and functioning O.K. so I gave up. Conditions changed and I became unable to sleep more than 4 or 5 hours. The short amount of sleep plus the apnea made it almost impossible for me to function. I needed help badly. Went back to Shoup's and literally begged for help. His response; we're busy come back and see us in 6 MONTHS. At the rate I was going in 6 months I probably would have been dead. Went to the sleep center at the UCONN Medical center in Farmington where they were terrific. Actually beyond terrific. The Doctors could nor have been more concerned or professional. They solved the problem the Shoup wouldn't. Feel better than now not only before my recent issues but before I saw Shoup in the first place.
