Pulmonological disorders, including but not limited to Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD), asthma and pneumonia, traditionally require multiple hospital trips for care and follow-up. For Geisinger patients who have respiratory problems, they can now get access to a pulmonary specialist through our TelePulmonology service without having to travel all the way to Geisinger Medical Center in Danville.


David Fisk, MD, Associate, Thoracic Medicine at Geisinger, talks about the TelePulmonology services offered by Geisinger and how these services benefit patients.

For those patients seeking non-emergency treatment for pulmonological conditions, TelePulmonology enables patients to be seen at their local Geisinger primary care clinic site, where in conjunction with their primary care physician they can better diagnose, treat, manage and monitor their condition, and in doing so avoid unnecessary trips to the hospital.
