Experiencing shortness of breath, chronic coughing or chest discomfort? Our expert team of board-certified pulmonologists and pulmonary specialists can help.

We specialize in diagnosing and treating a wide range of conditions that affect your lungs and breathing, like asthma, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) and pulmonary hypertension. Using the latest diagnostic tests and treatments, we create the best possible care plan to manage your symptoms and improve your quality of life.

Conditions treated

From sleep apnea to lung cancer, our skilled team treats a variety of pulmonary conditions, including:

  • Asthma
  • Bronchiectasis (causes tissue scarring of the lung airways and coughing up mucus)
  • Chronic bronchitis (causes inflammation in the lungs’ breathing tubes and coughing)
  • Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) (blocks airflow from the lungs)
  • Cystic fibrosis (causes severe damage to the lungs and other organs)
  • Emphysema (damages air sacs in the lungs)
  • Interstitial lung diseases (Cause inflammation, scarring and difficulty breathing)
  • Lung cancer
  • Lung nodule (a small, round abnormal growth in the lungs)
  • Mycobacterial infection of the lungs (can cause lung damage)
  • Pleural diseases (cause problems related to the pleural membranes that surround the lungs, such as infections or tumors)
  • Pneumonia (infection that causes inflammation of the lungs’ air sacs)
  • Pulmonary complications from COVID-19
  • Pulmonary complications from medical conditions
  • Pulmonary complications from organ transplantation
  • Pulmonary embolism (blood clot in the lungs)
  • Pulmonary fibrosis (scarring of the lung tissue)
  • Pulmonary hypertension (high blood pressure that affects arteries in the lungs)
  • Respiratory failure
  • Sarcoidosis (causes inflammatory cell clumps that form in the lungs and can lead to respiratory symptoms)
  • Sleep apnea
  • Unexplained cough and shortness of breath

Services and procedures

From diagnostic testing to advanced procedures, we offer a full range of services to treat conditions that affect your lungs and breathing.

  • Bronchoscopy

    Involves a thin tube (with a light and tiny camera) that’s used to look at the lungs and airways for diagnostic or therapeutic purposes.

  • Electromagnetic navigational bronchoscopy (ENB)

    Provides a 3D image of the lungs and airways and is used to get a biopsy (a sample of tissue or fluid) or treat various lung conditions.

  • Endobronchial ultrasound (EBUS)

    Involves an ultrasound along with a bronchoscopy to view the lungs and airways and can be used to get a biopsy (a sample of tissue or fluid).

  • Endobronchial valve placement

    Involves placing a 1-way valve into an airway to help control airflow.

  • Exhaled nitric oxide measurement

    A breath test used for diagnosis and follow-up care.

  • Lung cancer screening

    A quick, painless diagnostic test that uses a low-dose CT scan to screen for lung cancer.

  • Lung nodule program

    Provides comprehensive care when a lung nodule is found incidentally (by accident) or through lung cancer screening.

  • Medical pleuroscopy

    Involves inserting a thin tube with a camera through the chest wall for diagnostic and therapeutic purposes.

  • Oxygen qualification testing

    Used to see if oxygen therapy is needed.

  • Pulmonary function testing

    Measures the lungs’ ability to move air in and out of the lungs.

  • Pulmonary rehabilitation

    May help you manage your symptoms and feel better if you have difficulty breathing and performing daily activities.

  • Robot-assisted bronchoscopy tool

    Used to visualize and biopsy (get a sample of tissue or fluid) parts of the lung that are hard to reach. And it’s the only one in the Charlotte region.

  • Simple pulmonary stress testing

    Involves walking for 6 minutes at a normal pace to monitor your response to lung treatments.

  • Sleep studies

    Used to diagnose and treat a variety of sleep disorders, like obstructive sleep apnea.

  • Smoking cessation services

    Can help you quit smoking.
