EvergreenHealth's Pulmonary Care Center offers a team approach focused on wellness, early diagnosis and expedited treatment for respiratory conditions.
Our team includes specialists in pulmonary medicine, sleep medicine, critical care, thoracic surgery, oncology and respiratory therapy - working together with the latest technology to expedite diagnosis and treatment.
Common pulmonary diseases we handle include:
Our specialty is finding the right combination of drugs, refining medication plans, and managing complex cases to include the latest therapies for asthma. Our care includes periodic testing and patient education to improve quality of life.
Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), which includes chronic bronchitis and emphysema, is a time-consuming and complex disease to manage. Our specialized nursing care helps patients navigate the complex process needed for a speedy diagnosis and lifelong management.
We provide complete care from diagnosis through treatment in conjunction with a multidisciplinary team that includes thoracic surgery, radiation oncology, medical oncology and pulmonary medicine. EvergreenHealth is a recognized leader in radiation oncology with one of the most advanced linear accelerators in the world.
This broad group of diseases, which includes idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis and nonspecific interstitial pneumonitis, can mimic COPD and other pulmonary diseases, rendering diagnosis difficult. Bronchoscopy, biopsy and other diagnostic testing may be needed.
We offer the widest range of pulmonary care physicians on the Eastside; every physician in our group has more than 10 years of experience in their field.
Our focus is to provide answers to your questions. In addition to your medical care, our education sessions, work groups and classes will help you to better understand and manage your disease, and improve your quality of life.
