How can pulmonologists help with your eosinophilic asthma?

ANSWER

These internal medicine doctors are experts on lungs, and asthma is a lung disease. Pulmonologists focus on conditions that affect your respiratory tract, which stretches from your nose to your windpipe to the lungs. If you�ve been diagnosed with eosinophilic asthma, especially if your case is severe, you�ll likely need a pulmonologist to put together a personal treatment plan.
