Specialties

Dr. Vincent M Lem has the following 3 specialties

  • 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.

  • 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.

Best Doctor I've seen in a long time

Dr. Lem is the best doctor ever, very caring very, very concerned he listen to what your concerns are. I an incident with my primary care physician and all I needed was some methyl prednisone to be called in but he told me to go to the ER. It was on a Friday I called Dr. Lem's office he was gone for the day but his on call partner called me in a prescription within an hour after taking the medication and I was a hundred percent better. That's what I like about Dr. Lem and in his office they know how to take care of you with no questions asked. Dr. Lem has the best bedside manner that I've seen in a long time and I think it carries over with the rest of staff in that office because everyone is really nice and friendly in that office.

After seeing many board certified asthma/allergy doctors for a continuing problem Dr. Lem diagnosed a mitral valve prolapse that needed surgery. We have continued on together since then. He is the smartest, kindest, best doctor I have ever had the fortune to know. I love you Dr. Lem and thank you for being my doctor.
