Pulmonology

Providence Medical Group Pulmonary Medicine is the only group in the area with three pulmonologists board certified in critical care. The medical center where they practice, Providence St. Mary Medical Center, in 2012 built a new, state-of-the-art intensive care unit, and also has the area’s largest number of nurses certified in critical care on staff. This helps ensure the best possible care for seriously ill and injured patients.

Special Treatments or Procedures Performed:

  • Interpretation of pulmonary function tests
  • Bronchoscopy
  • Pleural biopsy
  • Thoracentesis
  • Sclerotherapy
  • Critical care management

Patients often require no special preparation for a visit. However, if you are scheduled for a special test or procedure, the staff will discuss with you any preparations that may be needed. To ensure the best possible results, please follow any instructions you receive carefully.

Our staff will provide you with any information that may be needed about what to expect before, during and after procedures you may be scheduled for. If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to ask.
