What is Pulmonary Medicine?

Pulmonary medicine is concerned with diseases of the lungs and bronchial tubes but can include the evaluation of the upper respiratory tract, heart, and vascular system.

In Preparation for Your First Appointment

In most cases, your first appointment will be a consultation with the physician. This consultation requires a careful review of your medical history to ensure that you get the best medical care possible. Because this is so important, we try to have all of your pertinent medical records and X-rays available for the doctor to review. Please bring the following:

  • A list of all of your current medications
  • A list of questions that you might have
  • Any necessary letters, reports, CDs or actual files
  • Insurance authorization (if required by your insurance)
  • SD Card from your sleep machine (for sleep patients)
  • Your insurance card

It is also a good idea to call the office in advance to make sure that your medical records and tests sent from other doctors have arrived.
