From common conditions like asthma and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) to more advanced lung disease, our pulmonology team has the training and experience to diagnose and treat a wide range of conditions that affect the lungs and respiratory tract. These include:

COPD care

COPD is a treatable chronic (long-term) lung disease. Our pulmonology team can help you manage your condition so you can gain control of your symptoms, improve your quality of life and stay healthy.

Interstitial lung disease care

Interstitial lung disease is a group of diseases, including pulmonary fibrosis and sarcoidosis, that cause scarring on the lungs. Our pulmonology team can help you manage your specific condition to help protect your lungs from damage.

Lung nodule care

Typically benign (or non-cancerous), a lung nodule is a small mass of tissue on the lung that can be identified by an X-ray or CT scan. Once it’s identified, our pulmonology team can monitor the nodule to make sure it’s benign and not interfering with your health.

Frequently asked questions

What is pulmonology?

Pulmonology is a medical specialty that involves the diagnosis and treatment of conditions that affect the respiratory system, which includes your lungs and other organs that help you breathe.

Conditions include those that are infectious, structural, inflammatory and tumor-based.

What do pulmonologist do?

Pulmonologists diagnose, treat and can help manage a wide range of conditions that affect the lungs and respiratory tract, such as asthma, bronchitis, COPD, emphysema and obstructive sleep apnea.

Pulmonologists can also provide breathing care and support to patients in the intensive care unit (ICU) of a hospital.

If you’re having difficulty breathing or any unusual symptoms related to breathing, you should always start with your primary care doctor first. They will perform a medical exam and may refer you to a pulmonologist if you:
