Pulmonary Disease

Lung diseases are common in the United States, and include asthma, COPD, chronic bronchitis, and emphysema. Many lung diseases come on slowly, and patients don’t even realize how much work they’re putting into just breathing. We help you determine the cause of your pulmonary concerns and work together to find the right treatment to improve your health and well-being.

Sleep Disorders

Whether children or adults, sleep is essential for every living being’s functioning. Sometimes falling asleep can be extremely difficult, and this can be due to a wide range of reasons and possibilities. A good night’s sleep not only gives one a fresh start to the day, but reduces the risk of developing one of the many health conditions such as high blood pressure, congestive heart failure, weight gain, diabetes, heart disease, and asthma, that are caused or worsened by untreated chronic illnesses such as obstructive sleep disorder.

Pediatric Sleep

When kids aren’t sleeping well, it affects every facet of their lives and in several different ways. It can affect their behavior at home and at school, as well as their performance in sports, among other activities. Many children with sleep disorders are mistakenly diagnosed with ADHD. However with proper evaluation and treatment of sleep disorders their ADHD symptoms can improve without medication. When you ensure your kids get a good night’s sleep, you are setting them up for good health throughout their lives.

Obesity Medicine

While many doctors are comfortable telling patients that their weight is unhealthy, few seem to be able to offer solutions. Too many doctors refuse to treat patients for any health issues until they lose weight, but are unable to give medical advice beyond exercise more and eat less. We seek to identify the factors that may have caused patients to struggle with their weight, and assist patients in addressing and mitigating these concerns so that they can achieve an overall healthy body.
