Pulmonology

Pen Bay Pulmonology treats disorders of the lung including chronic diseases such as emphysema and asthma, diseases caused by exposure to toxic substances, sleep disorders, chronic cough relief, interventional pulmonology and acute pulmonary problems such as pneumonia.

Patients can receive guidance in living with such conditions as COPD, asthma, cystic fibrosis and lung cancer. Our care extends to respiratory screenings, treatments, therapies and teaching self-management.
