Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD) is a progressive lung disease that, over time, makes it hard to breathe. COPD is an all-encompassing condition that includes distinctive diseases such as asthma, bronchitis, and emphysema.
Typically, you will experience tightening due to swelling and inflammation of your airways. The flow of air becomes restricted as COPD progresses. COPD restricts the amount of oxygen that enters your body and waste carbon gas to be expelled from your body. Over time, this reduces your quality of life and makes you breathless.
Cough – Ongoing dry cough or cough with phlegm
Shortness of Breath – Frequent respiratory infections, shortness of breath, gasping for air, or wheezing
Chest Tightness – A squeezing or tightening in the chest area
Fatigue – Feeling continually worn out, not having the desire or ability to exercise
Weakness – Feeling continually worn down and weak
The Lung Center of America Difference
YOU do NOT have to live with symptoms of COPD when you can live symptom-free. Many of our patients, who had experienced a decline in their quality of life, have returned to their normal active lives.
At LCOA, we investigate and treat the cause of the symptoms, not just the symptoms.
LCOA provides safe, proven, and effective treatment protocols—individualized for each patient.
Our COPD patients experience significant breathing relief.
Dr. Wagshul’s patients are rarely admitted to hospitals or need emergency treatment for breathing problems.

My husband, Bruce, and I just wanted to thank your entire office for everything you've done for many in the early treatment of COVID.
We have referred many friends and family as far away as Texas and Arizona. It is prevention and early treatment of COVID that has kept everyone out of the hospital. Every person who has dealt with your office appreciates the kindness they received."
