Comprehensive Pediatric Pulmonology Services
Our dedicated staff includes board-certified pediatric pulmonologists, pediatric nurses, dietitians and social workers who combine clinical excellence with compassion to give your child the highest level of care.
Our team approach ensures that family members play an active role in the treatment plans we customize to the needs of each child.
Our pulmonologists are expert physicians who evaluate and treat children with allergies and asthma. They offer comprehensive diagnoses and management of nose, ears, sinus, skin and lung conditions. Education and disease management are at the core of the care we provide.
Treatment plans may include medications and/or immunotherapy to reduce allergic reactions. Your child will receive an individualized plan based on their specific needs.
Breathing difficulties, shortness of breath and coughing or wheezing may be related to:
- Food allergies
- Hay fever
- Respiratory allergies
- Sinus issues
Many children suffer from obstructive sleep apnea. Not breathing properly while sleeping can impact proper weight gain and growth and lead to behavioral and learning problems.
Signs include snoring loudly, choking, coughing, turning blue or frequently waking up throughout the night.
Catholic Health Sleep Centers at Good Samaritan Hospital (West Islip, NY) and St. Charles Hospital (Port Jefferson, NY) are staffed with board-certified pediatric sleep specialists and pulmonologists who use overnight sleep studies to diagnose sleep disorders. Our centers offer comfortable accommodations for children and parents.
