We see patients from all over the northeast and patients often travel to us from throughout the country and abroad to be evaluated and treated at our tertiary referral center with exceptional experience with these diseases.

Our program, created in 1997, offers you significant expertise and support in multiple areas, including treatment of complex lung diseases, the opportunity to participate in clinical and translational studies, and the chance to receive experimental therapy. We also work tirelessly to conduct research into the causes and potential cures for ILD and participate wholeheartedly in the education and support of patients, providers and caregivers.
