Obstructive Lung Disease
Asthma, Emphysema, and Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD) are the most common lung diseases in the United States. These Obstructive Lung Diseases cause symptoms such as coughing, wheezing, shortness of breath, low oxygen levels, and can sometimes lead to hospitalizations. These conditions can severely impact the quality of life of the patients who have them.
At our Obstructive Lung Diseases clinic, we strive to provide state-of-the-art care for patients with these conditions. From diagnosis to management, we provide the most advanced therapies available for the comprehensive care of our patients.
Our goal is to not only preserve lung function, but also improve quality of life so our patients can breathe easier and feel strong.

Although 16 million Americans have been diagnosed with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, it remains remarkably misunderstood, even to some people already suffering.
Untreated obstructive sleep apnea presents very real threats: it can increase your risk of high blood pressure, stroke, and heart attack, and has been linked to cardiovascular disease, diabetes, and even glaucoma.
