Pulmonary Telemedicine

Pulmonary Telemedicine is provided by Dr. Chapla, Dr. Fassari and Dr. Italiano of BEAM Telemedicine. 

You may need to see a Pulmonologist if you have:
  • Asthma
  • COPD
  • Emphysema
  • Interstitial lung disease
  • Pulmonary hypertension
  • Pulmonary nodules
  • Other pulmonary diseases

We offer appointments with a pulmonologist through Telemedicine twice per month (usually falling on a Wednesday or Thursday). The pulmonologist is present at the appointment via a robot. A respiratory therapist will be in the room, perform a physical if needed, and communicate with the provider. The provider can then evaluate, diagnose and treat the patient.

A referral from your provider is required. Please note – not all insurances cover telemedicine services. Upon referral, coverage will be verified.
