Pulmonology Q&A

What is pulmonology?

Pulmonology focuses on the health and function of your lungs and other parts of the respiratory system. Problems with your respiratory system typically result in breathing problems, which can be very risky if they’re severe enough to limit your oxygen intake.

You should consider booking a pulmonology consultation at Vantage Medical Associates PC if you have persistent symptoms like:

  • Coughing for three weeks or longer
  • Chest pain
  • Wheezing
  • Fatigue
  • Trouble breathing
  • Frequent upper respiratory infections
  • Dizziness or lightheadedness

Several tests can help identify or rule out possible causes of your breathing issues. Once you have a diagnosis, the Vantage Medical Associates PC team can start planning a treatment strategy.

Who can benefit from pulmonology?

Pulmonology treatments and services can help you manage chronic or acute conditions that make it hard to breathe. A few of the respiratory illnesses and diseases that Vantage Medical Associates PC specializes in diagnosing and treating are:

  • Asthma
  • Chronic obstructive pulmonary disorder (COPD)
  • Post-COVID-19 syndrome
  • Pneumonia
  • Tuberculosis
  • Emphysema
  • Bronchiectasis
  • Bronchitis
  • Complicated chest infections
  • Cystic fibrosis

If you have certain respiratory conditions, like asthma, the team works with you to identify the triggers that tend to make your symptoms flare up. In any case, they can go over your treatment options with you and provide regular assessments as you undergo treatment. Appointments are available in the office or with telehealth.

Which pulmonology services can I get?

Vantage Medical Associates PC offers advanced diagnostic tests and services to improve your treatment for any respiratory disease. Available pulmonology services include:


Spirometry, the most common pulmonary function test, measures several lung functions. It measures the amount of air you inhale and exhale with deep or normal breathing and shows how quickly and effectively you can empty your lungs. It involves the use of a device with a mouthpiece that you blow into.

Chest X-ray

A chest X-ray is a multipurpose diagnostic test that offers a view of many organs, including your lungs and airways.

Treatments and medications

The team creates a personalized treatment plan for your condition and can perform regular tests as you continue your plan. Treatments for respiratory issues are typically nonsurgical, and your plan might include breathing exercises and medications.

Respiratory disorders require effective management strategies, which can help you avoid surgery in the future. Book your pulmonology consultation over the phone today or online at Vantage Medical Associates PC.
