Specialties

Dr. Robert W Hart has the following 4 specialties

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • Bariatric Medicine

    Bariatric medicine focuses on the causes, prevention and treatment of obesity. Bariatric specialists are trained in medically supervised weight loss and the management of obesity as a chronic condition. These specialists are skilled in various disciplines that help patients lose weight and obtain optimal health.
    The field encompasses dieting, exercise and behavioral therapy, anti-obesity medication, pharmacotherapy and surgery. Bariatric specialists might be from surgical backgrounds and perform obesity-related operations or they might be nutrition and hormone focused, prescribing diet and exercise plans as well as weight loss medications.
    Patients defined as obese or having unhealthy Body Mass Indices (BMI) have much greater risk of heart disease, diabetes, asthma, sleep apnea, hypertension, many types of cancer and chronic musculoskeletal problems.
    One subspecialty of bariatrics is the focus on the correlation between obesity and mortality.

Not There when I really needed a Dr.

When I was in the hospital, I had difficulty sleeping. I called and left a very specific voice mail (no real person to speak to) to call me back as soon as possible. I never received any return call. When I called the office after my release from the hospital and asked if my message was never relayed, or if the Dr. failed to call me back, they said they had no record of me ever calling. To get an appointment, the wait is 7 weeks.

Extremely unfriendly front desk

I have not seen this doctor nor would I try to see him. The front desk staff that answers phone and is supposed to the first step is extremely rude. You can leave messages and they seem to have trouble returning phone calls.

unhappy patient

Dr. Hart didn't seem to interested in my sleep problem,it seemed like he just wanted me to buy some equipment. Just didn't seem to interested. When I asked to return the equipment the office said no refunds sorry. Never had a problem with any Doctors office before. I'm glad that I can share this with others. The nose breathers that were never opened cost only $20.00 or $2.00 per nite. Don't be tricked into this cure. They didn't work for me, very uncomfotable.

Two Stars

Does not have patience for people who are having a difficult time doing things his way. Would rather write you off than try to get at the bottom of the problem and help come up with a resolution.

Visit us on our website?!?!?!?!

Tried to make an appointment. Had to listen to a recorded list of options. Made my choice and had to listen to another recorded voice tell me to leave a message and phone number OR for faster service, visit their website. Nothing like a personal touch when dealing with someone's health care! I'm less than impressed so far.
