Respiratory Therapy

RtRespiratory Therapists provide care to anyone who is having trouble breathing. Breathing problems can be caused by diseases that involve your lungs, heart, kidneys or brain. They can be caused by blood clots, infections or injuries.

We also perform tests which help your physician have a better understanding of what is wrong with your breathing or heart and how best to treat it.
