Who We Are
Pulmonary & Critical Care of Northwest Michigan, P. C., is a group of six physicians who are Board Certified in Pulmonary and Critical Care Medicine. Two of our six physicians are additionally Board Certified in Sleep Disorders Medicine. We provide consultative and managing pulmonary services in our office at North Royal Drive and via our hospital practice at Munson Medical Center. We serve patients throughout northern lower Michigan.

Our six physicians rotate duties between the hospital and office to maintain availability of weekday 8 am - 4:30 pm office services, as well as 24-hour hospital coverage. You will primarily deal with one physician, but may be seen by others in the group if an emergency occurs.

Mission Statement
The mission of our team is to diagnose any lung and respiratory problems, and recommend a treatment that will give you the best breathing and overall health. We are dedicated to delivering quality care, and our staff provides personal service. We maintain telephone and on call availability at all times.

What is a Pulmonologist?
Pulmonologists have training and expertise in diagnosing the cause of problems such as shortness of breath, chronic cough, and abnormal chest x-rays. Common diagnoses include:

  • Asthma
  • Bronchiectasis
  • Bronchiolitis obliterans
  • Chronic bronchitis
  • Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD)
  • Chronic respiratory failure of various causes
  • Emphysema
  • Lung cancer
  • Pulmonary fibrosis
  • Pulmonary hypertension

Two of our physicians are specially trained to diagnose and treat sleep disorders, including:

  • Sleep apnea
  • Restless leg syndrome

Each of our physicians is also an Intensivist, which means we care for patients in the Critical Care Units of the hospital. Patients in the hospital commonly have breathing failure requiring support with breathing machines or require complex monitoring and medications to support them.
