Pulmonary Consultants of Hagerstown began seeing patients October 9, 2008, weekly in the Rehabilitative Services area at Fulton County Medical Center. Beginning May 5, the group will be relocated into the newly created pulmonary services area, just behind admissions in the main lobby.

The group of five physicians, Dr. Abdul Waheed, Dr. Shaheen Iqbal, Dr. Johny Alencherry, Dr. Pajman Danai and Dr. Kalim Ahmed specialize in pulmonary and sleep disorders.

Patients who have benefited from this evaluation include those with complaints of excessive daytime sleepiness or fatigue, trouble falling or staying asleep, witnessed severe or irregular snoring or breathing pauses, frequent tossing and turning, a need to move their legs or leg kicking, morning headaches, and occasionally in younger patients, hyperactivity.

Pulmonary Consultants of Hagerstown is located at 12821 Oak Hill Avenue, Hagerstown, MD 21742. Appointments can be made by calling the local office number at 717-987-0095. Depending on your insurance, you may need a referral from your primary care physician.
