Dr. Sunil Mehra 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.

  • 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.

Knowledgeable, experienced, kind doctor, crummy office

Switched from our Upper East Side Yale doctor to Dr. Mehra's office in Astoria, cloer to where we live. Love the man, hate the rundown office...not even a coat hook or any place to hang your coat or clothing in reception area or examination room... even the examination table is falling apart! Evelyn the receptionist is charming, but overwhelmed. Medical assistant is not very polite or smart. But Doctor Mehra is great. After a cruise, my husband and I came home with very congested lungs and we could not get better. Our young Manhattan dr. at the time saw us 3 times over a three week period. He refused to give us antibiotics, even after 3 weeks with no improvement. I thought that this was ridiculous considering our ages 71 & 80. Afterall older people are more vulnerable to getting Pneumonia. So I searched for a pulmonologist nearby, found Dr. Mehra, learned that he was also a gerentologist. He checked out our lungs, listened to us without rushing. He said, "You both clearly need antibiotics". With a prescription from Dr. Mehra, we finally got appropriate medicine and within a week we were well. So he is now our primary care doctor. logist nearby
