Pulmonary Consultation may be referred by your doctor to us where we see you in our office setting or we may be consulted to see you in the hospital setting.
When patients are admitted to the hospital, many times our services are needed. This may be to assist in managing a more common diagnosis such as a flare in emphysema, or in more complicated cases, needing to perform biopsies for a lung mass. We work closely with other physicians to make sure the patient as a whole is being treated, not just a specific problem. We also try very hard to make sure that when one of our patients that we see in the office is admitted to the hospital, we help participate in their care. We also try to ensure close follow-up after the patient is discharged because we believe that care does not end after the patient walks out of the hospital.
