At PMA, our physicians possess specialized knowledge and skill in the diagnosis and treatment of pulmonary (lung) conditions and diseases. From the common cold to allergies, emphysema to lung cancer, there are many illnesses which affect the lungs and the ability to breathe.
Pulmonology is classified as an internal medicine subspecialty. Because pulmonologists encounter a variety of clinical problems, they must have knowledge of internal medicine and other specialties in order to obtain certification. Pulmonologists may serve as consultants to other physicians as well as provide long-term care to patients with chronic conditions.
As specialists in the field of pulmonary medicine, the providers of PMA can diagnose and treat any disease impacting your pulmonary health. If you think you have a lung disease, or would like a second opinion regarding your lung disease, we would be happy to help you.
