Dr. Kevin Strait is board certified by the American Board of Internal Medicine in addition to being board certified in pulmonary disease. He specializes in diagnosing and treating diseases that affect the lungs and respiratory system.
Pulmonology is a medical field of study within internal medicine. Specialists in pulmonary disease must first complete a rigorous training in the field of internal medicine and spend several years in fellowship specifically studying pulmonology, which often includes critical care and sleep medicine. Board certification ensures the advancement of clinical knowledge and skills of a physician that can lead to improved patient outcomes and experiences. Board certification is also a commitment by the physician to continuous learning striving towards clinical excellence in the care of their patients.
Dr. Strait provides comprehensive care for a spectrum of pulmonary diseases such as asthma, bronchiectasis, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), lung cancer, pneumonia, pulmonary fibrosis, and sarcoidosis.
