If you are troubled by Shortness of Breath that your Primary Care Provider cannot solve, then your first step is to see a local Pulmonary Physician.

If you have seen a local Pulmonary Physician and you still feel that the problem has not been solved, then we may be able to set up an appointment for you with specialists in dyspnea at the Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center for an evaluation and second opinion consultation.

Please call 617-667-5864 for an appointment with Dr. Doug Beach and let them know that you were referred from this website. Dr. Beach is a pulmonary physician at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center.
