Pulmonary Rehab

Our pulmonary Rehab program is designed as an outpatient program to help improve quality of life through physical exercise, educational activities and other health related services. This program is designed for patients with chronic respiratory diseases.

We accept orders from local physicians, as well as out-of-town physicians. For orders to be performed, we require a written order, signed by your physician, with the tests needed and a diagnosis related to the testing being ordered.
