We Understand

For patients with breathing disorders, every breath can be challenging. At HMG Pulmonology, we understand the challenges you face every day. We believe in creating a partnership with our patients, working together as a team to help you breathe easy and enjoy an improved quality of life.

Expert Care You Can Trust

At HMG Pulmonology, you’ll enjoy the personalized, attentive care of Dr. Leon Bass who uses the latest advances in the diagnosis, treatment and management of a variety of breathing problems, sleep problems and other lung and pulmonary conditions. Dr. Bass is highly qualified and holds three board certifications: Internal Medicine, Pulmonary Disease, Critical Care and Sleep Disorders Medicine.

Dr. Bass believes the key to a successful physician-patient relationship is taking the time to listen and being available to patients as their needs arise. He also understands that many times, the relationship with the patient’s care givers are also critically important. After all, caregivers are often the ones helping on a day to day basis to ensure the care plan is followed.
