Pulmonology

Overview

Pulmonology is a speciality of medicine that deals with diseases related to the respiratory system. The doctor who diagnoses and treats such diseases is referred to as a Pulmonologist. Short duration illnesses such as mild cough or cold can be treated by your physician but when it comes to complicated conditions like Bronchial Asthma, Shortness of breath, chest tightness etc. you should see a Pulmonologist.
