Specialties

Dr. Ritwick Agrawal 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.

Will recommend without reservations

To be honest I was a bit reluctant to see him in the first place. He looked pretty young and I had a bad lung problem which several other docs have not been able to diagnose properly. Just after spending 5 minutes with him you will know, he is a very good person and a sharp doctor. He picked up all my previous work up quickly and within 2 visits went to the bottom of the problem. My complex issue is not completely fixed but at least I know what's wrong. I think this is how a doctor should be.

I felt like a human being

This doc listened to me. I have been to several docs and I never felt that they gave a crap about my condition. This time I really felt like a human.
