Annapolis Asthma Pulmonary and Sleep Specialist was established in 1985 by Dr. Robert Peterson, founder and president.

Pulmonary Medicine is a subspecialty of Internal Medicine. Pulmonologists diagnose and treat disorders of the lungs and respiratory system. These disorders include asthma, emphysema, and COPD. They also treat infections such as pneumonia and TB; as well as diseases such as lung cancer, sarcoid, pulmonary fibrosis, chronic cough; and occupational lung diseases such as asbestosis. Sleep Medicine is provided by our sleep specialists. Evaluation and treatment of Sleep Apnea snoring narcolepsy, insomnia, restless legs syndrome, periodic leg movements, REM behavior disorders and other sleep related problems are performed. Annapolis Asthma Pulmonary and Sleep Specialist works closely with the Anne Arundel Sleep Lab and Sleep Services of America. Home sleep studies are also available.

Their practice also includes Critical Care Medicine. As Intensivists they are trained to care for patients admitted with life threatening illnesses to the intensive care unit. They are the primary physicians responsible for the patient’s care while in the unit and coordinate all diagnostic and treatment plans with the other physicians involved.
