Pulmonary Medicine
Pulmonary medicine or Pulmonology, as it is
called, is a specialty treating diseases of the lungs
and chest. Diseases of the chest can come on
suddenly or be life-long problems. We use
modern techniques to make the diagnosis quickly.
Technology used to diagnose the problem can
include chest x-rays, lung function tests, blood
work and oxygen tests, lung biopsy and other
methods. Dr. Warner was Cullman's first full-time
