Specialties

Dr. Steven E Dekich has the following 2 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.

He sent me for a test and it took me about 2 months to get the results. And I had an appointment but he changed it to a day I couldn't make so they were going make me wait another 2months until I asked to be switch to another Doctor. He still hasn't figure out what is causing my symptoms but is referring me for another test.

My father was referred to this guy by his GP. He takes one look an X-ray without any tests and says " it's probably cancer" have a nice weekend. Schedules a biopsy for Monday morning. To me that's terrible bedside manor!! Why not just schedule the biopsy and leave it at that??
