Pulmonology

A medical specialty that deals with the health and diseases of the respiratory system.

The pulmonology services offered through Touchette Regional Hospital encompasses all organs that help you breathe including the airway, lungs, and respiratory muscles. If you are experiencing chest pain, shallow breaths, exhaustion, or are having a hard breathing normally, an appointment with a Pulmonologist may be in order.

Most of the time, patients are referred to our pulmonologists by their primary care provider if they need medical treatment for illnesses and conditions that affect breathing and the lungs, such as:

  • Asthma
  • Bronchitis
  • Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD)
  • Emphysema
  • Lung cancer
  • Lung nodules
  • Obstructive sleep apnea
  • Pneumonia
  • Pulmonary fibrosis

At Touchette Regional Hospital, we employ pulmonologists that are credentialed in numerous health plans. The physicians, RNs, medical assistants, and clinical service representatives, as well as licensed physician assistants and certified nurse practitioners are proud to offer exceptional care tailored to your needs.

If you’re noticing anything unusual with your breathing or respiratory health, have it checked by your doctor and ask for a referral to come see us. 

Our Pulmonologists are located at Archview Medical Center, 2071 Goose Lake Road in Sauget just off Interstate 255 in St. Clair County.
