The simple pleasure of breathing in Nantucket’s salt air and summer breezes is something we all take for granted. A lung disease can hinder that enjoyment, and pose serious risks to your overall health. At Nantucket Cottage Hospital, lung care is provided by Dr. Jock Lawrason and Dr. Frederic Knauft, who specialize in pulmonary medicine. With an advanced pulmonary function lab, we are able to offer a full-range of tests, including lung volume and diffusion capacity. Our team can diagnose, treat and monitor a range of lung diseases and conditions right here at Nantucket Cottage Hospital, including:
- Chronic bronchitis
- Shortness of breath
- Excessive coughing
- Lung function in former smokers
