Asthma and Other Lung Diseases

The Asthma and Other Lung Diseases program at NewYork-Presbyterian Brooklyn Methodist Hospital brings together a unique group of pulmonary specialists and medical services to offer coordinated, comprehensive diagnosis and treatment of a broad range of lung conditions including asthma and many others.

Our physicians are experts on the latest and most advanced asthma treatments, some of which are very effective. Anyone observing or experiencing an "asthma attack" should try to stay as calm as possible, administer medication, and/or call 9-1-1 immediately. It is essential that asthma attacks are treated as quickly as possible.

Cough, shortness of breath, abnormal breathing patterns, chest pain, and chest tightness are the most common clinical signs of lung disease. It is important that anyone who experiences these symptoms seeks medical care as soon as possible.

With our Pulmonary Function Laboratory, our Center for Sleep Disorders and other advanced diagnostic equipment, and with our full range of pulmonary specialists, we can provide the best possible options to diagnose and treat virtually any lung-related condition. Though lung diseases and their symptoms can be stressful, our patients breathe easier knowing they are connected to a vast network of lung care.

Because early detection of lung cancer increases the chances for a good outcome, we encourage patients to learn whether they are considered to be at risk for the disease. View more information about NYP Brooklyn Methodist's Fred L. Mazzilli Free Lung Cancer Screening Program here and learn whether or not you are at special risk and eligible to participate.
