Pulmonary / Asthma

Our team of board-certified pulmonary physicians diagnose and treat disorders of the lungs and respiratory system, as well as sleep disorders. We have two locations – Everett and Edmonds – to serve you.

About Our Practice

All of our physicians and staff in both our Everett and Edmonds locations are dedicated to providing high-quality comprehensive medical treatment and exceptional customer service to our patients. Our team of board-certified pulmonary physicians diagnose and treats disorders of the lungs and respiratory system, including asthma, emphysema, shortness of breath, hypoxemia, cough, and COPD. We also treat infections such as pneumonia and TB, as well as diseases like lung cancer, pulmonary fibrosis, chronic cough and occupational lung diseases.

In addition, our physicians evaluate and treat sleep disorders, including sleep apnea, insomnia, restless legs syndrome and narcolepsy.

Some of the services we provide:

Office Consultation:

The visit will include a physical examination, full history of the current problem and review of pertinent medical history, previous lab tests, chest x-rays, CT scans and sleep studies. A plan for further diagnostic evaluation and treatment will be presented.

Follow up Care:

As needed

Arterial Blood Gas (ABG):

To measure the blood oxygen, carbon dioxide and pH levels.

Pulmonary Function Testing:

PFTs tell us how well your lungs function, and the results are used to follow the progression of a disease and its response to treatment. PFTs can also be used to assess if there is adequate respiratory function to withstand surgery.

Spirometry:

An abbreviated lung function test used during follow-up visits to evaluate the status of patients with asthma and COPD.

6-Minute Walk:

A simple exercise test used to evaluate a patient’s initial functional status and to measure improvement following the initiation of treatment for shortness of breath.

Bronchial Thermoplasty:

This new treatment for hard-to-treat asthma is now available in Everett.
