DOCTORS WHO TREAT PULMONARY HYPERTENSION
PHA provides the following lists of physicians who treat PH as a service to patients and does not specifically endorse any individual physician. All information has been provided by the doctors so that you can make your own assessment of their qualifications. All doctors on the lists are members of the Pulmonary Hypertension Clinicians and Researchers (PHCR), PHA’s membership network for physicians and researchers.
The Find a Doctor Directory is meant to assist you in identifying doctors with expertise and resources to diagnose and manage pulmonary hypertension.
The Find a PH Pediatrician Directory is meant to assist you in identifying doctors with expertise and resources to diagnose and manage pulmonary hypertension in children.
PHA's PH Care Centers initiative seeks to identify Centers with expertise in pulmonary hypertension that have demonstrated an ability to properly diagnose the disease and have the capability to manage these complex patients. Each accredited Center has opened its doors to a site review conducted by a PH physician and coordinator selected for their expertise in the field.
Doctors who treat pulmonary hypertension are PH specialists, and they have focused their practices on the diagnosis and treatment of pulmonary hypertension. PH specialists are typically cardiologists, pulmonologists or rheumatologists who have a special interest in pulmonary hypertension. Nurses, pharmacists and internists can also have special training in pulmonary hypertension.
Pulmonary hypertension is an uncommon but serious disease, and most generalists have little training or experience in PH treatment. Therefore, patients are encouraged to see a PH specialist. These doctors have had extensive training and will provide you with the best care possible.
