Specialties

Dr. Samuel K Dartey-Hayford has the following 3 specialties

  • Critical Care Medicine

    Also sometimes referred to as intensivists, critical care specialists are physicians with specialized training in the diagnosis and management of life-threatening conditions. Some of these conditions affect vital organs like the heart and lungs, those that make breathing difficult or impossible, and those that affect entire organ systems, like the renal system.
    Critical care specialists are typically found in a hospital's intensive care unit where they monitor patients with life-threatening conditions and make determinations as to the best course of treatment.

  • 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.

One Star

We were referred to Doctor Hayford's practice and the quickest appointment we could get was with him, and we soon found out why. Being unfamiliar with all of the dotors in the practice, and needing to be seen without delay, we accepted an appt. with Dr. Hayford. He was congenial and that is all I can say that is positive. He spent at least the first 15 minutes of the appt. talking about an allergy which was not even related to my daughter's condition. I had to bring him up to speed on why we were there! While viewing the CT Scan, he glossed over what was later to be the diagnosis-which was found by the cardiologist! Apparent to other doctors-not the "lung Specialist" my daughter suffers with chronic pleurisy (a LUNG disease). Doctor Hayford sent us away after a lengthy appt. with no diagnosis and an insinuation of 'anxiety'. He was negligent and this lack of expertise borders on mal-practice. We will now be sure and see a "real" doctor to get to the bottom of my daughter's medical problems.
