Pulmonary and Critical Care Medicine

An acknowledged leader in pulmonary care and education, The Brooklyn Hospital Center has become the consultant of choice for general internists and family medicine physicians throughout Brooklyn. Our board certified Pulmonologists are specialists in the diagnosis and treatment of diseases, disorders and injuries of the lung and bronchial tubes.

Working in partnership with your primary care physician, we offer a broad range of services, from routine asthma care, smoking cessation, and COPD treatment to the diagnosis and treatment of lung cancer, interstitial lung disease and acute lung injuries.

Nationally recognized for quality patient care, the Division of Pulmonary Medicine is a proud recipient of multiple Pulmonary Excellence Awards, recognizing the hospital as one of America’s top ranking providers of pulmonary services.

The Brooklyn Hospital Center is also home to a state-of-the-art Pulmonary Function Test (PFT) laboratory. Pulmonary function tests help your physician determine how much air your lungs can hold, how quickly you can move air in and out of your lungs, and how well your lungs add oxygen and remove carbon dioxide from your bloodstream.
