Specialties

Dr. Robert J Lapidus has the following 2 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.

thank you Dr. Lapidus and staff

I have suffered for years with breathing problems associated with asthma and allergies. After seeing Dr Lapedus, a complete workup was done and a diagnosis of Sarcoidosis was determined. Dr. Lapedus is thorough, caring and doesnt miss a word I say in treating this condition. He has helped me 100 percent. He actually calls me on the 'phone to follow up or has his PA, Tahlia Hoffmann call. If he isnt available I can always count on Tahlia and her profesional and knowledgeable standards to pull we through a crisis till Dr. Lapedus is available. I owe them my life. Dr. Lapedis works with other specialists to meet the needs I have in dealing with my illness. He cares for his patients.!
