Summit Health Pediatric Pulmonology uses the latest technologies, including pulmonary function testing (PFT), exercise challenges, and flexible fiber-optic bronchoscopy. We also offer radiology studies, sleep studies, and allergy testing.

Our Pulmonology Experts Can Help Ensure Your Child Receives Appropriate Screening, Evaluations, Effective Treatments, and Thorough Follow-up Care to Help Him or Her Breathe Easier.
Our dedicated pediatric pulmonology team understands that infants, children, and teens have unique health care needs because their bodies are growing. They know that children and adolescents often experience symptoms differently than adults. In addition, our pediatric experts know it can be difficult for kids to answer questions, tell parents and practitioners what they are experiencing, and sort out emotions they might have as a result of illness. For these reasons, our child pulmonology experts are focused on helping children and teens relax, feel comfortable, and work together with their medical team for the best possible results.
The comprehensive children's health care services at Summit Health are recognized for excellence and compassion. We offer the highest quality, comprehensive children’s health care services in a safe, comfortable, and friendly environment designed to ease your child’s medical visits. Our goal is to help your child overcome or better manage chronic or severe lung problems as quickly as possible.
