Specialties

Dr. Valerie A Schneider 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.

Dr Schneider is not only professional but extremely good listener. She is totally tuned into what you are saying and picks up on any details that would help make a diagnosis. I felt very cared for in a way that many doctors have fallen short. I would highly recommend her to anyone with pulmonary issues.

Best Doctor...PERIOD!!

I consider myself extremely lucky to be one of her patients. She's one of the kindest, and most down to earth, caring physicians Ive ever met. She doesn't just spend minutes with you, she spends HOURS with you. She takes the time to get to know you so she can give you the best care. Ive had severe asthma since birth ( 50+ years) . Ive had countless doctors and specialists treating me over the years, but I never really clicked with any of them. Now I can truly say, I have a doctor I love. She's wonderful.
