Frequently Asked Questions


What is a Pulmonologist and what do they do?

A pulmonologist is a doctor who diagnoses and treats diseases of the respiratory system — the lungs and other organs that help you breathe.

For some relatively short-lasting illnesses that affect your lungs, like the flu or pneumonia, you might be able to get all the care you need from your regular doctor. But if your cough, shortness of breath, or other symptoms don’t get better, you might need to see a pulmonologist.
