Who we are
Our team includes physicians, nurses, exercise specialists, social workers, and dietitians who use their expertise to help you breathe easier. Our philosophy is about treating the whole person, not just symptoms. We work with you to develop the right treatment plan for your specific needs.
At Kaiser Permanente, your pulmonology care team is connected to your primary care team and any other specialists involved in your care — and you — through your electronic health record, so we know exactly what your care needs are at any point in time. We all work together to deliver the right care for you and to bring you to your best health at every visit.
We hold weekly meetings with surgeons, radiation oncologists, and neuro-radiologists to review tumor cases, meaning that ten or more doctors could review your case at any given time and provide you with the best possible care.
The way we practice medicine at Kaiser Permanente gives us the freedom to focus on care, rather than running a business. We are free to practice medicine the way it is supposed to be practiced — with a focus on providing expert, compassionate care to you.
Every member of your care team is here to support you through your journey. When you have excellent doctors, truly connected care teams, advanced technology, and the right partners, you can expect great results.
