pulmonology

Pulmonary illnesses can impact the quality of a person's life in a great way. Difficulty breathing, snoring and fatigue limit the activities those suffering from COPD, emphysema, asthma, sleep apnea and other respiratory conditions do on a daily basis. Different tests and treatments (performed both in our office and at the hospital) help determine the cause and alleviate the symptoms of respiratory disease.
