Culturally-sensitive respiratory care

People of Asian descent are more susceptible to certain lung illnesses such as lung cancer, TB and asthma, according to the American Lung Association. At the Asian Lung Clinic, our care is tailored with you in mind.  We provide an interpreter who stays with you throughout the appointment and offers translation services if needed. We'll also work with your primary care provider to figure out the very best treatment plan for you. You should come to us if you have:

  • Trouble breathing
  • Shortness of breath
  • Feel like you're not getting enough air
  • Decreased ability to exercise
  • Constant cough, wheezing
  • Coughing up blood or mucus
  • Pain or discomfort when breathing
