"Dr. Alatassi may be competent, but it was hard to tell. His English is terrible.
As for his office, they alone are the reason I would never go back. They don't answer the phones or return messages. They provided zero information about my test results. They took months to get my prescription set up.
The sleep test center that is affiliated was good. Professional, courteous, efficient."

What is Pulmonology?
Pulmonology is a subspecialty that focuses on complex diseases of the lungs. In order to diagnose and treat lung disorders, a pulmonologist may also examine the chest, nose, throat, or heart. However, the main function of pulmonology is to make sure the lungs are functioning well.
Some of the diseases and disorders that might be treated by a pulmonologist include:
Mesothelioma and other lung cancers
A pulmonologist often uses pulmonary function tests, such as spirometry, to measure how well the lungs are able to move air in and out. Pulmonologists are trained to take surgical samples and biopsies when needed, but they do not typically perform surgery. Pulmonologists may provide consultations to other doctors, acute care for sudden illnesses, or regular care for patients with long-term lung disorders.
