Pulmonologist FAQs

What is a Pulmonologist?

A pulmonologist, also known as a pulmonary doctor, pulmonary specialist, is a medical doctor who specializes in the diagnosis and treatment of diseases and conditions related to the respiratory system, particularly the lungs and breathing. Pulmonologists undergo extensive training in internal medicine followed by further specialized training in pulmonary medicine.

What is the difference between a lung doctor and a pulmonologist?

A pulmonologist treats and diagnoses respiratory illnesses. These medical professionals may be referred to as chest doctors, lung specialists, or lung doctors. Your respiratory system, in addition to your lungs, consists of your nose, throat, trachea, airways, muscles, and blood vessels.

Which is the most common pulmonary disease?

Asthma and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) are the two most prevalent chronic respiratory illnesses. Both of these have an effect on the lungs’ airways. Due to airway narrowing, asthma is characterized by repeated symptoms of dyspnea and wheezing that vary in intensity and frequency from person to person.

Is pulmonary lung disease treatable?

Although there is no cure for COPD, disease management can lessen symptoms, decrease the illness’s course, and help you avoid the hospital. The goal of treatment is to stop more injury, lessen the chance of consequences, and lessen some of the symptoms. Medications, oxygen therapy, and pulmonary rehabilitation are available as treatments.

What Respiratory Disorders do our Herndon Pulmonologist treat?

Our Herndon Pulmonologists specializes in:

  • Infectious diseases 
  • Structural abnormalities
  • Inflammatory issues
  • Neoplastic (tumors)

Lung conditions often present in such a way that they mimic other conditions such as heart issues. As such, pulmonologists often work in conjunction with cardiologists when coming up with a proper diagnosis.

What Types of Pulmonary Specialties are There? 

Pulmonology is a complex discipline that often requires further specialization in order to provide superior treatment and care.

Subspecialties of Pulmonology Include:

  • Interstitial lung disease – dealing with diseases of the lungs marked by chronic inflammation and scar tissue
  • Interventional pulmonology –takes a multidisciplinary approach to treat those disorders affecting the airway (such as pleural diseases and lung cancer).
  • Lung transplantation – preoperative and postoperative support and care
  • Neuromuscular disease – deals with those conditions brought about as a result of respiratory muscle failure
  • Obstructive – this specialty involves those conditions where the airway is narrowed or obstructed
  • sleep-Disordered Breathing – a multidisciplinary specialty that deals with breathing disorders that are connected to sleep disorders.

How can your Herndon Pulmonologist Help?

Our Herndon Pulmonologists help patients who are facing chronic, debilitating and often serious breathing problems. Although primary care physicians are often a good option for short term conditions such as respiratory infections and even asthma, they are not well equipped or trained to handle serious and often complex lung conditions.

If you or a loved one has been suffering from respiratory problems, an accurate diagnosis is the first step, and our highly trained and experienced pulmonary specialists are the team to help. Once a diagnosis has been determined, your pulmonary doctor will create a tailored treatment plan just for you.

When is Seeing a Pulmonologist Appropriate?

Simple coughs, allergies and non-life threatening or chronic conditions should generally be treated or examined first by either your primary care physician or urgent care. 

However, if you are experiencing chronic, worsening or persistent respiratory issues it may be time to see one of our pulmonologists for assistance. 

Below are some common symptoms that may be indicative of pulmonary issues:

  • Chronic fatigue
  • Wheezing
  • Chest pain or tightness
  • Lightheadedness, dizziness or fainting
  • Difficulty breathing (especially during physical activities)
  • Uncontrolled asthma
  • And more…

How do Herndon Pulmonologists Diagnose Disorders?

A Pulmonologist will talk you step by step through the process and what to expect, making sure you are comfortable at every step of the way.

Their first objective will be to begin the diagnostic process with a thorough review of your medical and family history, with a special focus on any diseases that affect the lungs (such as cystic fibrosis). They will also take into consideration environmental exposures such as air quality or pollution concerns in the workplace.

After a full understanding of family history, environmental exposure and symptoms have been obtained, your pulmonary doctor will likely perform a physical exam in order to potentially uncover other disorders or issues that may be contributing to your pulmonary complaints.

It is not uncommon for pulmonologist to work in concert with other specialists on your case (such as cardiologists) in order to obtain a complete and accurate diagnostic picture of the state of your lungs.

What Types of Tests will I Need to Have?

Your pulmonologist may recommend a number of tests based on the results of your initial consultation, history, symptoms and physical exam.

Tests that may be Used to Diagnose Pulmonary Disorders Include:

  • Blood tests
  • Pulmonary function tests
  • Chest X-rays
  • Spirometry of maximum airflow
  • Bronchoscopy 
  • CT scan
  • Sleep Studies (polysomnography)
