WELCOME to SleepCenterNYC

JCAHO castle-connolly  SuperDoctors

Heart and Lung Associates, P.C. has been delivering state-of-the-art medical care to the New York community for more than two decades. We are a small, multidisciplinary medical group specializing in lung and breathing problems and sleep disorders. Our website name reflects the fact that we have the only fully certified Sleep Center in the borough of Queens. However, we also treat a wide variety of cardiopulmonary conditions, among these being:

  • Asthma
  • COPD (including chronic bronchitis and emphysema)
  • Respiratory Allergies
  • Lung Cancers
  • Interstitial lung disease
  • Collagen vascular disease (e.g lupus)
  • Pulmonary artery hypertension
  • Sleep apnea

We work closely with all of our patients to slow or reverse the progression of their diseases, while striving to minimize the effect of those illnesses on their everyday lives. All physicians in the practice are Board Certified internists who have a sub-specialty certification in either cardiac or pulmonary medicine. Beyond this, we are also certified in Sleep Medicine, and maintain a fully accredited and equipped diagnostic sleep center. Within the same premises we also possess equipment for the most up to date lung function testing, and maintain a lab for cardiac stress testing and echocardiography.

Tip Title: Exercise Needn't Be Extreme

Even moderate exercise brings real health benefits. Walking briskly for 20 minutes, three times a week has been shown to have a very positive effect. Such regular exercise will help to maintain muscle strength, bone density and lower overall cardiovascular risks. It will also make weight maintenance easier to achieve, particularly for diabetics.

A Breathing Technique Offers Help for People With Asthma
I don’t often write about alternative remedies for serious medical conditions. Most have little more than anecdotal support, and few have been found effective in well-designed clinical trials. Such trials randomly assign patients to one of two or more treatments and, wherever possible, assess the results without telling either the patients or evaluators who received which treatment.
