Dr. Thomas Mann has the following 3 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.
- 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.

Dr. Mann definitely exceeded my expectations. He came highly recommended to me by other doctors, and I noticed that his office staff and respiratory therapist also thought highly of him. I have a very rare, very complicated condition. It turned out that most of my health needs won't fall into the area of his specialty, but that didn't stop him from spending a lot of time with me and carefully listening to what I knew, and patiently and politely correcting some misconceptions that I had. He was clearly very knowledgeable, and he also had that thirst for knowledge and answers that I think is becoming rare. I was also impressed that he ordered a test at the hospital, I had it done, and he called me with the results that same night. He also plans to research my rare condition and call me to see what else he can tell me. Wow. I wish he could be my primary doctor.
