Specialties

Dr. Sanjay R Patel 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.

Appointment made less than hour before

I made appointment with their office just like hour before scheduled time. On my way to the office we got stuck in traffic, realizing that I will be late 10 min, I called to advise. Talk to Yolanda and she said that doctors is busy but if not more than 10-15 minutes then I can come. I showed up exactly 15 min. later, Then i was informed that doctor can not take me in even if I wait for other patients to finish visits, that were scheduled. It was refused again. They advise me that I should go to emergency or other location urgent center. Needless to say while making appointment they ask to collect payment first since I was self pay. Very disappointing as it was related to me that doctor did not want to take me in after all. Now looking at all the profile waiting in his affice is about 35 min and that is OK, but when you are late 10 minutes than they will cancell your appointment. What a arrogance and disrespect.
