Dr. Wendy Davidson 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.

I have used Dr Davidson for several years for sleep apnea and other sleep disorders after having had a sleep study. I have always been satisfied with her diagnosis and her ability to explain things to me where I could understand what was going on. My late husband also used her for breathing issues he developed with a paralyzing disease and she ran extensive tests to try to resolve his undiagnosed breathing problems. Unfortunately he passed away from a secondary disease we knew nothing about (cancer) before any diagnosis could be given. But I continue to use Dr Davidson for my sleep disorders and I am completely satisfied with her courteous bedside manners, her ability to communicate well with me and her staff is EXCELLENT especially her nurse, Tara. She will bend over backwards to help you with a problem and communicates your problem well with Dr Davidson and gets back to you ASAP with an answer. I highly recommend Dr Davidson for any Sleep Disorder problems or Pulmonology Problems. She is the BEST in the area, in my opinion.
Dr. Davidson is completely professional, knowledgeable with respect to the latest studies, and never acts as though she has any time constraints when she is with me. For those who need a hand holder, Dr. Davidson is not for you. She is very direct, does not mince words, but answers any and all questions. I completely trust her opinion and appreciate her not sugar coating bad news. I would recommend her to anyone.
