Signs you May Need to See a Pulmonologist

A visit to our clinic is usually not the first place a patient goes to for help. In fact, the majority of common, non-life-threatening and non-chronic, lung conditions are usually treated by a primary care physician. For example, general asthma, allergies, coughing and more.

However, when symptoms persist or become increasingly severe, this often requires a consultation with a lung specialist to identify and treat the underlying cause.

Some Indicators you May Need to See a Pulmonologist Include:

Difficulty breathing
Shortness of breath during normal daily activities
Pain or tightness in the chest
Chronic or worsening wheezing or coughing
Frequent chest colds or bronchitis
Difficult to control asthma
• And more…

Your primary care physician should be able to help guide you as to when it may be appropriate to see a specialist.
