Your primary care, emergency room, or referring physician has asked that you see a pulmonologist. A pulmonologist is a physician who specializes in conditions involving the lungs.
Nebraska Pulmonary Specialties, LLC has six board certified critical care physicians who rotate through the Lincoln hospitals for a week at a time. You may see one of our pulmonologists routinely in the clinic and see a different one during your stay in the hospital. You may see more than one of our physicians should you be in the hospital longer than one week. Our physicians confer with one another to insure your regular pulmonologist is aware of your hospitalization and the activities surrounding your care. Consequently, when your physician is covering one of the hospitals, he/she is not available for appointments in clinic (approximately every third week).
