We diagnose and care for patients with a spectrum of lung diseases including asthma/COPD and interstitial lung disease. The cornerstone of our treatment relies on an integrative approach to patient care thus we offer an exercise/wellness program within our clinic.
We provide minimally invasive techniques to diagnose and treat lung cancer and other cancers that may involve the chest. We also offer a complete range of diagnostic and therapeutic procedures for pleural diseases and benign conditions affecting the central airways.
We evaluate and treat sleep disturbances and sleep disorders which include Insomnia, Sleep Related Breathing Disorders, Central Disorders of Hypersomnolence, Circadian Rhythm Sleep-Wake Disorders, Parasomnias, and Sleep Related Movement Disorders.
Our physicians are actively engaged in clinical trials and research studies, which may offer participants early access to new treatments or treatment strategies particularly valuable for those who have not responded adequately to conventional treatments.

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.
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.
