Pulmonary Disease

Pulmonologists are experts in diseases of the lungs. They diagnose and treat chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, cancer, emphysema, pulmonary fibrosis, pneumonia, bronchitis, asthma, allergy, and other complex disorders of the lungs. Pulmonologists evaluate how well the lungs are functioning in many ways, including administering pulmonary function tests, chest x-rays, electrocardiograms (EKG), and stress tests.
