A respiratory physician – also known as a thoracic physician or pulmonologist – is a medical doctor with special training and skills in the diagnosis and treatment of lung conditions and diseases.
Why your child might see a respiratory physician
If your child has breathing problems, he or she might see a respiratory physician. A respiratory physician might also treat other breathing problems caused by asthma, cystic fibrosis, persistent cough, noisy breathing or other lung conditions. Respiratory physicians can also help with sleep problems like obstructive sleep apnoea and snoring.
We are proud to have Dr Greg Smith and Dr John Widger as part of our Paediatric Respiratory team.
