Dr. Regina R. Pillai, MD

Pulmonary & Critical Care

Personal Statement:

Our team provides a personal and compassionate approach to managing patients with new onset and chronic lung illnesses. I believe that every patient is a privilege to care for and understanding the patient’s needs is essential in the treatment plan. I strive to give our patients and families the best possible healthcare experience by educating them and providing them with a comprehensive treatment plan through an open and honest communication.

There are many new advances in treatment and prevention of lung diseases, such as screening for lung cancer and recognizing COPD and pulmonary fibrosis in the early stages. We provide a well-rounded approach using evidence-based medicine and excellent follow-up care. With strong ties to the local hospitals, we are also able to manage our patients with exceptional continuity of care both in and out of the hospital. This personalized approach provides our patients with comfort and quality care throughout the treatment and recovery process. I welcome you to our clinic for any of your pulmonary needs.
