Specialties

Dr. Robert D Vorona 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.

  • 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.

Full Review Rating Breakdown
Five Stars

I have no idea what happened with the other patient who put a review up here, but my visit with this doctor was nothing like that. Not only did he spend a lot of time asking questions, when he realized my diagnosis needed a specialist, he referred me to one of great standing. I did not find it to be a waste of time so please ignore the other review. I think a long wait time due to an overload of patients put the other reviewer in a foul mood.

USELESS

Had issues with getting an appointment scheduled. They didn't know what was going on. My file was not read nor printed out ahead of time prior to my visit and was told so once arriving. The doctor side stepped his way around saying he couldn't help me and offered no solutions or advice of where to go next. Feel very disappointed for him wasting my time and the unprofessionalism associated with him not reviewing my medical history prior to my visit and essential taking my money just for reading my file. If you have anything other than sleep apnea I DO NOT RECOMMEND. Additionally good luck getting through the phone lines and receiving a response back if you leave a message.
