Breathing is an essential part of life, and it’s highly disruptive to daily life when you you’re dealing with a respiratory condition. Our pulmonology services at Kern Medical can help you breathe easier. Our highly trained specialists are experts in preventive and treatment therapies to make sure our pulmonology care patients are making the most of their lung power. They are also highly skilled in emergency problems such as respiratory distress, shock respiratory failure, and trauma. And we care for patients in managing and treating chronic lung problems including asthma, bronchitis, COPD (chronic obstructive pulmonary disease), emphysema, and sleep apnea.

We are skilled at treating ARDS (acute respiratory distress syndrome), cystic fibrosis, interstitial lung disease, lung cancer, lung transplants, occupational lung disease, pulmonary hypertension, pulmonary tuberculosis, sarcoidosis of the lungs, and SARS (severe acute respiratory syndrome).
