Specialties

Dr. Satya B Chaparala 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.

Dr.Chaparala was professional, thorough and took plenty of time with me. He was explicit in his plan of care. He also spoke about how apnea runs in families, and mentioned that relatives should be checked who identify with the symptoms no matter where they reside. In other words, he was concerned about the health of people not the 'business' he could drum up. His after-care has been more than adequate: above average.

Great Doctor, Great Staff

I have nothing but good things to say about Dr. Chaparala and his staff. I am a difficult and unique patient and he took the time to go out of his way to speak with my other doctors in order to make sure my treatment plan was the best choice for me. His staff is always great, very helpful and pleasant.

Unbelieveable

During my annual recheck for sleep apnea, the doctor soliceted me for business. If I had sleep apnea, then my whole family must have it. They should all come to him and have a sleep study done. He was more concerned about druming up business, then caring for me during my visit that I am paying for. Have not been back since, and would not recommend him to my dog.
