They also educate patients on the management of lung diseases and other breathing conditions.

It is recommended to visit a Pulmonologist once a year to check the medical condition of the respiratory system. However, if a person is suffering from respiratory system diseases or conditions, they must consult and follow up with a Pulmonologist as and when required.
