Pulmonology + Allergy


It can be frightening when your child has a respiratory problem. You want to make sure he or she is receiving the best care available. That’s why parents choose the Division of Pediatric Pulmonology and Allergy at Tufts Medical Center for the management of respiratory diseases, allergic disorders and other acute and chronic conditions in babies, kids and teens. Led by Scott Schoeder, MD, our team of experienced clinicians is highly trained in the diagnosis and treatment of pediatric asthma, allergies, cystic fibrosis, chronic lung diseases related to premature birth and the complete range of related conditions.

Specialized care for asthma and respiratory problems

As part of a major medical center, we can offer our young patients evaluation and treatment that includes access to state-of-the-art equipment, advanced therapies, clinical trials and a team of specialists in pulmonology and from other clinical disciplines. Our top priority is to help you and your child feel comfortable managing respiratory conditions on your own after leaving the hospital with the ongoing support of our dedicated staff. No matter which respiratory problems your child has, we'll help him or her breathe easier to lead a comfortable and healthy life.
