TPMG expands pulmonology and sleep medicine group

The physicians of local pulmonology and sleep medicine group, TPMG Lung and Sleep Specialists, a division of Tidewater Physicians Multispecialty Group, an organization of more than 200 specialty and primary care providers serving the Tidewater area at more than 75 locations, have returned to the Suffolk community to provide pulmonary and sleep medicine care at their practice in the Harbour View area.

Having practiced in the Suffolk community prior to joining TPMG, the physicians, Drs. Subramanian Malaisamy, Amit Patel, Anil Patel and Rutul Shah, look forward to the opportunity of welcoming patients with respiratory and sleep problems.

“The new pulmonology and sleep medicine office in Suffolk allows TPMG to continue its commitment to patient access and continuity of care,” said Medical Director Dr. Jennifer Sharp-Warthan.

The physicians of TPMG Lung and Sleep Specialists have extensive training and experience in the diagnosis and treatment of pulmonary diseases and conditions such as chronic obstructive pulmonary disorder, asthma, chronic cough, bronchiectasis and lung nodules. The group also has a special interest in the management of pulmonary fibrosis, sarcoidosis, pulmonary hypertension and lung cancer.

Treatment and diagnosis of sleep disorders such as sleep apnea, snoring, narcolepsy, insomnia and restless leg syndrome are also available. Depending on the needs of the patient, sleep studies are conducted overnight at the Bon Secours Health Center at Harbour View or in the comfort of the patient’s home with take-home kits provided by the office.

The practice also offers evaluation of sleep for commercial drivers to maintain, or obtain, a commercial driver’s license, as well as evaluations for commercial pilots in accordance with current FAA regulations.
