November is lung cancer awareness month, which makes this a great time to talk about the Heritage Valley LungCare program. There are many reasons why your physician may refer you to Heritage Valley Pulmonology & Sleep Medicine and our LungCare program. Perhaps you recently had an x-ray or CT of your lungs that showed an abnormality, or you have a history of multiple lung infections. If you are a previous or current smoker, you may want to schedule a Low Dose CT Lung Cancer Screening. (More information below.)
At Heritage Valley Pulmonology & Sleep Medicine, we see patients on a daily basis who have abnormal chest/lung imaging results. Fortunately, our comprehensive LungCare program staff is available to diagnose and treat these issues. Our providers have trained at university medical centers all over the country, and are able to provide the latest techniques, such as Robotic Bronchoscopy. Our goal is to ensure that every patient has the best possible outcome and experience, from screening through treatment. Patients are guided through the process by our compassionate LungCare Navigator, and have access to our experienced multidisciplinary physicians and clinical team.
We strive to see new patients with abnormal test results within 48 business hours, and our wait times for procedures are much shorter than those at larger healthcare systems. This means that our patients receive answers and treatment more quickly.
Heritage Valley Pulmonology & Sleep Medicine has offices in both Heritage Valley Beaver and Heritage Valley Sewickley hospitals. Please call 724-773-6403 to schedule an appointment in Beaver and 412-749-7160 to schedule an appointment in the Sewickley office.
