Dr. Sue A Fessler has the following 2 specialties

  • 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.

  • 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.

I'd been seeing Dr Fessler since early 2010 thru late 2011.. Many appts to figure out what was wrong causing me to spit up huge amts of GRN phelgm daily. I have no prior history of allergies,sinus infect, nonsmoker. She seems to be a very caring and I'm sure knowledgable person but missed the boat on me in that time frame. almost 18 months of this, the meds didn't work- I started running 102-4 fevers ,lost weight, breathing prblms so much phlegm and infection for a very long time. But noone ever ran a sputum sample to figure if it was bacterial,viral or fungal.- which one wud think be BAU if no prior history... Well I finally found a non- pulmonalogist who did a sputum sample iand they found I have a trichoderma species fungal infection in my lungs all this time.. now I hope the new doc can get it under control- ...I am really frustrated and angry over this and its possible future consequences. Sadly she is not the only pulmonologist I saw who missed the boat also.. scary..

Dr. Fessler was extremely compassionate, bright and thorough. She took the time to explain what she was thinking in terms I could understand. I had to wait a bit at times, but knew that it was probably because she was giving someone else the time they needed.
