Hospitalization & Critical Care
At times asthma, COPD, lung cancer, pneumonia, or other pulmonary illnesses, may worsen to the point that hospitalization is required. If you are admitted with primary pulmonary issues or to the Intensive Care Units, our pulmonologists will likely treat you during your stay.
During a hospital stay, the following tests or treatments can be expected on a daily basis: lab draws, oral or IV medications, injections, nebulizer treatments, chest x-rays, or other radiology tests. Upon discharge, you will be scheduled for a follow up appointment and any necessary testing in our office to continue your care.

A biopsy is a procedure that removes a small piece of living tissue from your body. The tissue is examined with a microscope for signs of damage or disease. There are several ways that a biopsy can be performed and the choice depends upon the condition for which you are being tested. A biopsy can be performed during bronchoscopy, by passing a needle through the chest wall with the guidance of a CT scanner, and surgically.
