Physicians who specialize in pulmonology focus on keeping your lungs and bronchial tubes in proper working order. Whether you need diagnostic tests to determine why you have difficulty breathing or chest pain, or whether you have an acute lung disease or ongoing condition, a pulmonologist is the specialist to see. Diseases commonly treated by pulmonologists include pneumonia, asthma, tuberculosis, emphysema and complicated chest infections.
