General Pulmonology

Pulmonary medicine focuses on the prevention, diagnosis and management of conditions that affect the respiratory system. We care for patients with a broad spectrum of conditions including COPD/emphysema, asthma, interstitial lung disease and blood clots within the lungs (pulmonary embolism), to name a few.

We offer comprehensive care for our patients and offer pulmonary function testing and an exercise program for patients with chronic lung disease within our clinic. In addition, we are actively engaged in lung cancer screening and with our experienced interventional pulmonology program can offer cutting-edge, minimally invasive techniques if a procedure is needed.
