Pulmonology is the medical subspecialty that focuses on the diagnosis and treatment of lung conditions.
The Pulmonary Department consists of providers, physician assistants, nurses, and receptionists who are committed to our patients by providing quality coordinated care. With patient permission and input, we partner together to develop a plan of treatment, education and ongoing monitoring to ensure all individual pulmonary needs are addressed.
The Pulmonary Department philosophy is based on the belief that our prime purpose is to enhance the healthcare of our patients as we provide trusted service and promote a lifetime of wellness.
The Pediatric Pulmonology Department, which is combined with the Allergy-Immunology Department, provides evaluation and treatment of respiratory conditions from birth through adolescence. Respiratory conditions followed through this department include asthma, cystic fibrosis, recurrent pneumonia or bronchitis, stridor, infant apnea and near miss SIDS (Sudden infant death syndrome). Complete lung function testing, including exercise inhalational challenge and eNO, is available to evaluate lung diseases. Appropriate evaluation and home monitoring is available for infant apnea.Matt Gilman, MD Joins McFarland Clinic Pulmonology
