Some patients are surprised to learn that their respiratory system includes more than the lungs. The entire system contains your mouth, larynx, trachea, pharynx, lungs, bronchi and bronchioles, and certain muscles. Our medical team specializes in the function of the entire respiratory system, including organs and related tissues. We also address certain sleep disorders like sleep apnea.
Most PCP offices aren’t equipped to diagnose and treat respiratory disorders to the same extent as a pulmonologist’s office. Your general physician is the first step to any treatment. While their offices handle short-term illnesses like respiratory colds, they may send you to a specialist for more long-term or severe illnesses.
