For anyone with a fever or flu-like symptoms please call the COVID-19 Scripps nurse triage line 1-888-261-8431 for further instructions.

As we continue to feel the impact of the coronavirus (COVID-19), we want to share with you the steps we’re taking at Coastal Pulmonary Associates to help protect the health and safety of our patients and employees, which is always our top priority.

We continue to closely monitor local and national reports on the evolving impact of COVID-19. We are basing our guidance on the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), the World Health Organization and applicable public health agency’s recommendations.

We have implemented guidelines that instruct any employee or patient who may develop symptoms or come into contact with infected individuals to stay home and follow the CDC’s instructions. In addition We have implemented the following protocols for your safety and the safety of our employees and doctors:

  • We call patients 24 hours before the scheduled appointment to perform a phone screen for COVID-19 symptoms.
  • We offer a video visit with our physicians. A video visit requires one click of a button on your smart phone or your computer.
  • Video visits will have all applicable charges, the same as an office visit.
  • For the very limited number of patients that come into the office, we are performing a COVID-19 screen the day before the visit, then again in a separate lobby before entering the office.  Clearance includes taking your temperature and asking a series of COVID-19 related questions.
  • If you need medication refills, please call your pharmacy 3 business days before you run out as this expedites your refill. Please notify mail order pharmacies at least  7 business days in advance for refills.

Limiting the number of patients in our clinic is a priority to keep our patients and our employees safe.  As such, please call ahead prior to arriving at the clinic.

Our housekeeping and sanitization efforts in our clinics have been greatly expanded past our typical high hygiene standards, which include but are not limited to, wiping down common surfaces and equipment after each use. We’re frequently disinfecting often-touched surfaces such as door handles, countertops, treatment tables, chairs, equipment, computer keypads, faucet handles, and other commonly used items. We’re asking all of our employees (and we urge everyone) to follow the CDC guidelines to prevent the spread of the infection.

Again, the health and safety of our patients and employees are our top priority and we’re committed to doing our part to help keep you safe.    Please call our clinics if you have any questions or concerns.  If a representative does not answer, please leave a message and we will call you back as soon as we can.

My mother was asthmatic and experienced severe bronchial problems for years, was seen by several CPD doctors. She came to live with me due to her illness and I took her to Dr. Eisman. He admitted her to Scripps-Encinitas and administered doses intravenously for nearly a week. Guess what! She recovered COMPLETELY from her bronchitis. Not another incident. Mom raved about him, the only one who ever really understood and helped her. His knowledge was superb.

Dr. Makani has a wonderful approach with his patients! He put me and my husband so at ease during my clinical prior to major surjery. He walked us through the whole thing, stopped so I could ask questions, heard my husband's concerns, broke everything down for us. We felt in great hands the day of the operation, he remembered what we talked about during the consultation, followed up and assured that he would be calling with results as he believes in direct contact with his patients.

The office is clean and clutter free, and the staff are helpful and friendly. My wait times have always been very short. Dr. Horn heard my concerns, recommended follow-up tests, developed a treatment plan, and was sensitive to the cost of medications. He is very direct and to-the-point... I found him to be very professional and accurate in his diagnoses, comes into my appointments prepared, and doesn't waste my time getting up-to-speed or reviewing my records--he's already done that before I arrive.
PatientSan Diego, CA
Dr. Scott Eisman is an exceptional and thorough physician who has worked with me to manage my asthma for over 20 years. Dr. Scott Eisman is straightforward, gives very clear direction and very insightful when managing my condition. I recommend Dr. Scott Eisman and Coastal Pulmonary unconditionally to anyone needing a pulmonologist in San Diego.

WARNING SIGNS OF LUNG DISEASE - Contact us if you experience these symptoms

Chronic cough

A cough that you have had for a month or longer is considered chronic. This is an important early symptom that tells you something is wrong with your respiratory system.


Noisy breathing or wheezing is a sign that something unusual is blocking your lungs' airways or making them too narrow.

Shortness of breath

It's not normal to experience shortness of breath that doesn't go away after exercising, or that you have after little or no exertion. Labored or difficult breathing—the feeling that it is hard to breathe in out—is also a warning sign.

Coughing up blood

If you are coughing up blood, it may be coming from your lungs or upper respiratory tract. Wherever it's coming from, it signals a health problem.

Chronic mucus production

Mucus, also called sputum or phlegm, is produced by the airways as a defense against infections or irritants. If your mucus production has lasted a month or longer, this could indicate lung disease.

Chronic chest pain

Unexplained chest pain that lasts for a month or more—especially if it gets worse when you breathe in or cough—also is a warning sign.
