What we offer
Our Pulmonary Rehab program offers education and exercise sessions meeting three times per week. These sessions can help you feel better and have more control of your symptoms.
Admission to pulmonary rehabilitation requires a physician referral. Prior to beginning pulmonary rehabilitation, an exercise physiologist will complete an evaluation including your medical, occupational and social history. We may recommend to you and your physician additional tests including pulmonary function, exercise tolerance and an EKG.
An individual program will be designed that meets your specific needs. Your referring physician will be kept fully informed of treatment plans, findings and therapy results. We also send a written report including recommendations for follow up.
