How to prepare for the first visit?

Before you visit a lung disease specialist for the first time, it is a good idea to complete the full medical documentation on the problem that requires consultation and results of the current laboratory testing, if held by the patient.

If you have ever had screening tests (X-rays, tomography, MRI) performed, it is worth taking their results with you so that our specialist can refer to them.

Since the Melita Medical Center is a private facility, you can arrange a visit without having a referral to a pulmonologist.
