What to Expect

Once we’ve assessed your lung condition, our pulmonary rehab services typically include supervised exercise, breathing instruction, nutritional counseling and emotional support. Rehab sessions take place Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays at 9:30 a.m. and 2 p.m. Each session lasts about two hours, which includes class time and exercise time.

The program lasts four to six weeks, depending on your progress. When you finish the program, we’ll let your referring physician and primary care doctor know. 

Getting Started

Once we’ve received your doctor’s referral, you’ll be scheduled for an interview to prepare for your rehab plan. You’ll need to take these lung tests, unless you’ve already received them in the past six months: 

  • Complete pulmonary function test
  • Arterial blood gas test
  • Chest X-ray
  • Complete blood count
  • Electrocardiogram (EKG)

Your results will help us tailor the rehab program to your needs.

Insurance Coverage

Most health insurance plans cover pulmonary rehab. A self-pay wellness program is available if you’d like to continue monitored exercise after the program.
