ATLANTIC GENERAL HOSPITAL ANNOUNCES ATLANTIC GENERAL PULMONARY CLINIC SERVICES

10-28-2015

Berlin, Md. – Atlantic General Hospital and Health System is pleased to announce the opening of Atlantic General Pulmonary Clinic, located in the Atlantic Health Center on Healthway Drive in Berlin, Md.

Under the leadership of Medical Director Peter Costantini, DO, Atlantic General Pulmonary Clinic provides much needed education and guidance for individuals in the community with chronic pulmonary conditions.

Chronic illnesses such as COPD (chronic obstructive pulmonary disease) and asthma can be complex, as are the treatments to manage them.

“Patients often struggle to understand their disease and fail to grasp how to take their various medications appropriately,” said Costantini. “Then, they end up in the hospital with an acute problem. The clinic can help individuals avoid that and maintain a high quality of life.”

The Pulmonary Clinic provides comprehensive evaluation of current conditions and diagnostics including lung function and basic sleep and nutrition screenings. Patients referred to the Atlantic General Pulmonary Clinic will also receive valuable education on their prescribed treatments, which will include usage demonstrations of inhalers and other medications and action plans for self-care.

Costantini has been providing pulmonary and intensivist care for nearly 35 years. He is board certified in internal medicine with certificates in medical diseases of the chest and in critical care (board certified in pulmonology?)

Physician referrals can be made by calling the Atlantic General Pulmonary Clinic at 410-641-9703.
