Drs. Emanuele Santomauro, David Orr and John Villa treat all types of pulmonary diseases. Their practice, which is part of the
Hackensack University Medical Group (HUMG), treats asthma, pulmonary fibrosis, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) and
sleep-related disorders, including snoring and sleep apnea. They also evaluate lung nodules and masses, and can provide state-of-the-art
pulmonary procedures, such as endobronchial ultrasound (EBUS) bronchoscopy, navigational bronchoscopy and bronchial thermoplasty.
Using technology to benefit patients is important to the physicians. Their o;ce was the first private ambulatory practice at Hackensack
University Medical Center to implement a sophisticated electronic medical records system called EPIC. “Patients appreciate having the
ability to access their personal medical charts through a secure patient portal,” says Dr. Santomauro. “They can even email their doctors.”
Today other HUMG practices use the same system, which lets the pulmonologists safely share information with physicians in the network.
“We are proud to be recognized as New Jersey Monthly Top Doctors and appreciate the vote of confidence this award represents,”
Dr. Orr says. “This accolade shows that our peers respect our high quality care and dedication to excellence,” says Dr. Villa.
