All our doctors are very experienced in the management of COPD. We have good personal relationships with asthma and COPD specialists in Limerick can arrange referral for full lung testing if you are worried you may be developing COPD. We encourage all our patients to cease smoking and are happy to discuss smoking cessation at any time. We also advise all our patients who have COPD to ensure that they have an annual flu vaccine and at least one pneumococcal vaccine. Further information and support regarding COPD can be found here www.copd.ie and here http://irishthoracicsociety.com
