Pulmonologists are physicians who treat diseases and disorders of the lungs and respiratory system. They can diagnose a diverse array of conditions that affect the lungs. Many, like asthma, are quite common. In fact, lung disease affects more than 35 million Americans. The compassionate Pulmonology specialists at PacMed are ready to care for you.
