Our specialists in respiratory diseases (pulmonologists) treat lung and breathing problems. We treat patients in our office and in the hospital, including those in intensive care. Our specialists evaluate and treat shortness of breath, wheezing, hemoptysis (coughing up blood), pleural effusions (fluid collection around the lung), and lung cancer. We also treat allergies and chronic obstructive disease, or COPD.
Typically, patients are referred by their doctor because of their symptoms or disorder that appears on X-ray. Referrals are not needed, however, to be seen by our doctors.
Our offices are on the first floor of the Moye Medical Building across from the Brody School of Medicine. We have 12 exam rooms, a pulmonary function lab, and a bronchoscopy suite with a fluoroscopy unit. A state-of-the-art, fully-equipped four-bed sleep unit is also located here.
Our staff includes eight full-time, board-certified faculty, four fellows, and a dedicated nursing respiratory staff.
Here are some of the conditions we treat:

We also offer interventional pulmonology. This therapy treats patients who have large-airway disorders, lung cancer or pleural disease, which affects the lining of the lungs.
