PULMONARY AND INTERNAL MEDICINE

Consultations related to diseases of the chest

Dr. Wm. Wayne Hooper maintains a special interest in cardiopulmonary diseases such as pulmonary embolic disease,  pulmonary hypertension and right heart failure. Patient with obstructive lung disease (COPD, emphysema, chronic bronchitis, and asthma) are encouraged to be evaluated. In addition, patients with  shortness of breath, cough, wheezing and abnormal chest X-rays or CT scans of the chest are frequently assessed. Interstitial pulmonary fibrosis or other diseases resulting in restrictive lung disease, such as diseases of the thorax ( kyphoscoliosis, pectus excavatum, etc.) or diseases of the lung itself (pulmonary fibrosis, pneumonia, pleural effusions, lung masses or pulmonary nodules) are all part of Dr. Hooper's practice.
