Pulmonology


Specializing in the diagnosis and treatment of complex respiratory conditions and disorders, the Pulmonology Practice provides 24/7 service in the inpatient, outpatient and emergency care settings. We work closely with services like the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit, but almost 90% of our patients are treated on an outpatient basis. The team participates in clinical research involving conditions like Cystic Fibrosis (CF) and asthma. We currently have 105 CF patients participating in research projects. We are a multidisciplinary California Children’s Services (CCS) recognized Cystic Fibrosis Center.
