They work together to develop a plan of care that is individualized for optimal health and make sure that all the pulmonary needs of the patient are met.
Do I need a referral to see a specialist?
It's always best to start with your family physician and let him/her make that decision. If you have any questions regarding scheduling appointments, or would like more information, please call (319) 481 - 6124.
