Chest Medicine

Scripps Clinic Division of Chest Medicine

Any medical condition that affects the lungs or breathing, whether it’s a sudden illness or chronic disease, requires proper attention and specialized treatment. In the Division of Chest Medicine at Scripps Clinic and Scripps Green Hospital, our board-certified pulmonary physicians provide expert care for people with respiratory and lung problems.

In addition to providing the full spectrum of diagnostic services, including an on-site pulmonary function lab and bronchoscopy unit, our physicians offer the latest evidence-based treatments for a wide variety of pulmonary conditions ranging from pneumonia to lung cancer. No matter what the diagnosis, our goal is to help our patients breathe easier, get healthier, and experience improved quality of life.

Additionally, our physicians help bring innovative new treatments from the lab to the bedside by participating in clinical research. Recent research endeavors include new drug testing for asthma and COPD, and clinical trials to test low-molecular-weight heparin for the treatment of pulmonary embolism.
