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 Specialists works closely with the Anne Arundel Sleep Lab and Sleep Services of America. Home sleep studies are also available.
