- 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.
- Allergy & Immunology
- Internal Medicine
An internist is a physician who focuses on the diagnosis and treatment of conditions that affect the adult population—both acute and chronic.
These doctors are often who adults see as their primary physicians because they treat a broad range of illnesses that do not require surgical or specialist interventions. They also work to help a patient maintain optimal health in order to prevent the onset of disease.
In addition to treating the common cold and flu, internists also treat chronic diseases like diabetes and heart disease.

Doctor Smits is amazing because if it wasn't for him, I most likely wouldn't be here if I wouldn't of went to him from the beginning at 15 years old, to now at 23. He works well with my doctors and now will hopefully be able to work with my neuro because I know they would be able to help me aka help me by both docs working together.
Dr. Smits is amazing. I suffered with sinuitis and coughing for years. Dr. Smits diagnosed the condition and prescribed medication for Gerds that has corrected the condition.My son had allergies and a cough for years also and Dr. Smits gave him shots and medication that completly relieved the symptons. My husband has had a cough and constricted airways for the past 2 weeks with no relief from antibiotics. Dr. Smits diagnosed him with Whooping Cough and prescribed medication which is giving him relief. I would highly reccomend Dr. Smits services to everyone who has allergies or allergie like symptoms or pulmonary problems.
