Pulmonary, Critical Care & Sleep Medicine - West
The Oregon Clinic Pulmonary & Sleep Medicine - West specialty has a nationally prominent team of pulmonary physicians with expertise in evaluating and treating disorders of the respiratory system, specifically diseases of the lungs and associated organs. We treat patients with a wide variety of breathing complications and respiratory disorders ranging from symptoms such as cough, shortness of breath and chest pain to sleep related illnesses, asthma, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease and lung cancer. We also are experienced at working with diseases involving the blood vessels in the lungs and are proud to have been the first PHA accredited pulmonary hypertension care center in the Pacific Northwest.
We work as a team with the patient, loved ones, and referring providers to provide continued care and understanding of these diseases – from diagnosis to treatment plan development. We are also actively involved in clinical trials with the goal of advancing treatment options for patients with pulmonary diseases.
Our pulmonologists are active in the Providence St. Vincent Medical Center residency programs as teachers and program directors. The Oregon Clinic is the regional referral group for the National Jewish Hospital in Denver for Pulmonary Fibrosis. Along with other area medical specialists, our pulmonologists participate in the Thoracic Oncology Program, which provides advanced management of chest cancers such as lung and esophageal cancer.
It is our intention to serve with kindness and respect, appreciating the uniqueness of each individual who entrusts us with his or her care. We will remember that there is art to medicine as well as science, and that warmth, sympathy and understanding may equal or outweigh the technologies we may employ in our healing endeavors. We are dedicated to medical excellence that improves the lives of our patients, and to that end, we diligently stay abreast of proven new developments within our areas of specialty. It is through progressive knowledge and decades of experience that we strive to provide thoughtful, well-considered solutions to assist each patient in attaining their greatest levels of health, healing and wellness.
