Having difficulty breathing or suffering from a chronic lung condition can be frightening. At Methodist Hospital Northeast, our pulmonologists and other lung experts provide comprehensive and effective pulmonary care to address and treat your respiratory problems. To help our patients breathe comfortably again, we give you access to lung function tests, sleep medicine and critical care services – just to name a few.

We also have a designated sleep center with highly trained sleep specialists. The Center for Sleep at Northeast Methodist Hospital primarily diagnoses and treats narcolepsy and obstructive sleep apnea, but it can also provide care for a variety of other sleep disorders including insomnia, parasomnia and more.
