Specialties

Dr. Syed O Tirmizi 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.

  • 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.

Dr. Tirmizi was able to help with a difficult diagnosis and helped make my future for my "Golden Years" possible after I had given up. Also, he really listens and cares the way old family doctors did.My sincere thanks go to him and his staff.

Average Dr with apathetic staff

Dr. Tirmizi seems good enough, but his staff is some of the most unprofessional in the medical industry that I have dealt with. It was a very frustrating experience dealing with inaccurate information and zero follow up phone calls (when I was told they would). My worst experience is when his staff lied to my PCP by implying that I was at fault for not following up with them. Do not recommend.

Don't trust Dr. Tirmizi with your life NOR your health

Dr. Tirmizi is not a good doctor. I went into the hospital with a vestibular (ear and balance problem) issue and high blood pressure. At one point he said he would refer a neurolgoist but when I asked questions, he changed his mind and said forget about the neurologist. He ignored the ear issue and released me from the hospital with blood pressure of 171/111. Besides being curt, he was demeaning and just did not care if I had a stroke or not. Don't put your life or health in this doctor's hands.
