A pulmonologist is a physician specialising in disorders of the respiratory system. While primary care doctors can treat mild or short-term lung conditions, such as those caused by a cold or a respiratory infection, pulmonologists are consulted to diagnose, treat, and manage more complex illnesses affecting the lungs.
You should see a pulmonologist if you face the following symptoms:
+ Chest pain or tightness in the chest
+ Feeling dizzy, lightheaded, or fainting
+ Difficulty in breathing, especially during + exercise
+ Cold that is impacting your respiratory system (recurring or chronic bronchitis).
+ Asthma that isn't well-controlled, or has unidentified triggers.
