Pulmonology is a branch of internal medicine. This field specializes in diseases, accidents and other conditions involving your lungs and the rest of your respiratory system. Your lungs provide oxygen to your blood, which carries it throughout your body. Your lungs also expel carbon dioxide, which your circulatory system brings to your lungs from the rest of your body.

“First class service and professionalism from front desk staff to doctors. Care is exceptional and the effort put forth to diagnose is second to none. I have been to a lot of other hospitals in NY where I felt disgusted by the staff attitude and lack of respect and concern, but the doctors and staff here have manners and compassion for you as a human being. Thanks for the great job well done on my visit and as long as I live in NY you will be my home for medical care. Great job!” - D.A. Rodrigues
