Specialties

Dr. Robert D Black 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.

Very Good Doctor

Dr. Black has always treated me as well as I could expect. I was in the hospital twice and not on his behalf but he showed up at my room everyday. He was there just to check on me. I think he cares very much for his patients as well as there families. He has always explained my situation where my wife and I understand.

Difficult to Talk To

He is just not an easy doctor to talk with and appears to have no empathy or the ability to express feelings to the patient or family members to put them at ease.

One Star

Cold and detached are the two words I have for him. How would he like it if he had a family member seriously ill and was treated in the manner he treats them? No smile or word of encouragement much less empathy. Really sad because he is a great dr.
