Specialties

Dr. William Dent 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.

One Star

Dr. Dent's staff was nice. Dr. Dent himself was detached and curt. We sent him a copy of a recent CT scan that indicated that my wife had lung cancer that had also spread into her liver. We knew that before we came in but she was experiencing a really bad cough and on an inhaler and a nebulizer prescribed by a local MD. He basically said for her to make her plans and be settled with it all. He asked a few questions, assumed (incorrectly) that her cough was probably GERD and prescribed her a PPI. He gave her another inhaler and basically sent us packing WITH the copy of the CT scan we had forwarded there and the report that came with it. That, of course was interpreted by us as his resignation toward treating anyone he figures is already going to die so why even keep a record. He doesn't smile or say much. In fact I hardy recognized him from the picture above.
