  • Difficult or noisy breathing
  • Difficulty breathing and shortness of breath
  • Neuromuscular conditions

Experienced specialists

Our expert pediatric pulmonology specialists in the Lehigh Valley offer advanced treatments and pulmonary function testing (PFT) at convenient locations throughout the network and on-site at the Pediatric Specialty Center with our pediatric respiratory therapist. This enables us to give your child a comfortable, positive experience and leave with results and treatment plans.
