Dr. Lewis J Kass has the following 3 specialties
- Pediatric Sleep Medicine
- Pediatric Pulmonology
A pediatric pulmonologist is the go-to resource for children who need treatment for any kind of breathing issue or lung disease. If your child coughs up blood, has a cough that isn’t going away, or displays other symptoms such as trouble breathing, chest pain or wheezing, you can ask your doctor to refer you to a pediatric pulmonologist.
Common conditions and diseases they treat range from noisy breathing, asthma and chronic coughs to lung disease, apnea and cystic fibrosis. They can also diagnose and treat cases of pneumonia in children and prescribe any kind of respiratory medication or equipment your child might need.
A pediatrician is a doctor who specializes in the regular care of children, as well as the diagnosis and treatment of illness in children. Young patients are often more complicated to treat because they are still growing and developing.
While pediatricians may sub-specialize in specific therapy areas like oncology, surgery, ophthalmology, and anesthesiology, in general, pediatricians provide services like vaccinations, health exams, and treatment of common ailments and injuries. In addition, pediatricians are trained to handle the complex emotional and behavioral issues faced by children, especially during puberty.
Pediatricians normally see their patients from birth until the age of 18, although some may agree to treat patients into their early 20s, if requested.

Fraudulent billing. Saw my child briefly and charged me the maximum allowed. Wouldn't go back again. Tried to discuss it with the office manager, who was not helpful at all.
Dr. Kass is a phenomenal doctor. The time and care he puts forth in caring for his patiences is evident within the first minute of an appointment with him. He is thoughtful, excellent with children who may be timid or scared, and is willing to listen to what you have to tell him. He asks questions, is very thorough, and is open to parent suggestions and input. Dr. Kass is willing to see a child while sick, and has made space in his busy schedule numerous times to see my girls when sick- something most pulmonologists don't do. I have nothing but positive things to say about Dr. Kass. We are so happy we took the recommendation of a friend and set up an appointment!
After 3 years of wrong diagnosis, wrong medicine, and a sick son, Dr. Kass helped my son get healthy. He was the first pediatric pulmonologist that would see my son when he was sick. He also used equipment that my son could manage and that helped accurately diagnose his issues. I really feel like Dr. Kass listened to me in order to better understand my son's situation.
