Is it Time to See a Pulmonologist?

Breathing issues can be serious. When we are unable to breathe well, our quality of life isn't what we want it to be. If you're having trouble breathing, are seeking a diagnosis of a lung condition, or for several other reasons your primary care provider will likely refer you to a pulmonary specialist for the more complex issue.  

Leading Reasons to See a Pulmonologist

  • Chronic cough that persists more than 3 weeks
  • Chest pain or chest tightness
  • Difficulty breathing, in particular while exercising
  • Fatigue
  • Wheezing
  • Dizziness
  • Recurring bronchitis
  • Issues regarding asthma

What to Expect 

During your visit, your pulmonologist will perform a thorough exam and recommend additional tests if deemed necessary. Some tests that your physician may order include a spirometry, X-rays, CT scans, blood work, FeNO and/or EBUS.

Your doctor will talk you through the process and work with both you and your primary care provider to determine the best plan of care to address your condition and meet your individual goals.
