Frequently Asked Questions

What is pulmonology?

Pulmonology is a medical specialty focused on the diagnosis and treatment of respiratory conditions and diseases. Pulmonologists are trained to manage a wide range of respiratory disorders, including asthma, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), lung infections, and interstitial lung diseases.

You should consider seeing a pulmonologist if you experience symptoms or have concerns related to your respiratory health. Common reasons to consult with a pulmonologist include persistent cough, shortness of breath, chest pain, wheezing, or if you have a chronic respiratory condition that requires specialized care.

Pulmonologists perform diagnostic tests such as spirometry (lung function testing), chest X-rays, CT scans, and bronchoscopy to evaluate lung function and identify respiratory conditions. Treatment options may include medication management, oxygen therapy, pulmonary rehabilitation, and lifestyle modifications.
