Surgical specialists, sleep medicine practices moving


Rome Medical Practice’s Rome Surgical Specialists, and Pulmonology and Sleep Medicine practices are both relocating to 1614 N. James St.

The new office is located
adjacent to Rome Memorial

General Surgeon Pedro Del Pino, of Rome Surgical
Specialists; Pulmonologist Dr. Mohammed Seedat; and Family Nurse Practitioner Katherine M. Freeman, of Rome Pulmonary and Sleep Medicine, will all begin seeing patients in the new offices Thursday, Oct. 18.

Both practices are relocating from their Hill Road offices to be closer to the hospital and allow patients the convenience of seeing their provider and receiving diagnostic testing and treatment nearby. 

Appointments for pulmonary function tests, pulmonary
rehabilitation and sleep
studies will be coordinated in a timely manner.

Dr. Del Pino is board certified by the American Board of Surgery (ABS) and performs general surgeries, including breast biopsy and mastectomy, surgery for skin and colon cancers, gallbladder and thyroid disease, bowel obstruction and resection and other related bowel surgeries, gastrectomy, appendicitis, hernia repair and tracheostomy.

Dr. Seedat and Freeman care for patients with lung disorders and diseases, such as COPD, asthma, lung cancer and pulmonary hypertension.  In addition, they treat a broad range of sleep disorders, including sleep apnea, insomnia, narcolepsy, and sleep related movement disorders.

He is also certified in sleep medicine through the American Board of Sleep Medicine (ABSM) and is credentialed to care for pediatric and adult patients.
