Our Pulmonologists treat diseases involving the respiratory tract and are specially trained in diseases and conditions of the chest, particularly pneumonia, asthma, tuberculosis, emphysema, and complicated chest infections.
See a doctor immediately if you have any of these symptoms:
- Chronic cough: A cough that you have had for a month or longer.
- Shortness of breath: Shortness of breath that doesn’t go away after exercising, or that you have after little or no exertion.
- Chronic mucus production: Mucus or phlegm, is produced by the airways as a defense against infections or irritants. If your mucus production has lasted a month or longer, this could indicate lung disease.
- Wheezing: Noisy breathing is a sign that something is blocking your airways or making them too narrow.
- Coughing up blood: It may be coming from your lungs or upper respiratory tract.
- Chronic chest pain: Unexplained chest pain that lasts for a month or more—especially if it gets worse when you breathe in or cough.
