Veteran physician promoted to lead clinic adds new minimally invasive pulmonary diagnosis services.
CAPE CORAL — Dr. Joseph Daley has been named sole medical director of Pulmonary Consultants of Southwest Florida, where he will oversee the Cape Coral-based practice’s pulmonary and sleep medicine services that include sleep solutions and the evaluation, diagnosis and treatment of respiratory conditions.
Daley is incorporating new minimally invasive endobronchial ultrasound bronchoscopy and computer-assisted navigational bronchoscopy into the practice. The first procedure diagnoses lung disorders and the second biopsies and treats lung masses via electromagnetic navigation and real-time three-dimensional imaging. Both can pinpoint where an abnormality originated.
As medical director, he has also hired a sleep-certified licensed respiratory therapist to execute full pulmonary function tests within the practice’s on-site sleep lab.
Daley has treated patients at Pulmonary Consultants since 2004. Previously a faculty member of Penn State University College of Medicine, Hershey Campus, he is quadruple board-certified by the American Board of Internal Medicine in internal medicine, pulmonary disease, critical care and sleep medicine. He has served on the boards of directors of Hospitalist Group of Southwest Florida in Cape Coral and Inpatient Specialists of Southwest Florida in Fort Myers.
“I came to Southwest Florida to apply my experience and education to treating respiratory sleep disorders and provide personalized medical care,” says Daley in a statement. “Patients of Pulmonary Consultants deserve treatment that accompanies a committed and professional medical staff, and from consultation to solution, that’s exactly what they’re going to get.”
Established in 1989, Pulmonary Consultants of Southwest Florida treats shortness of breath, congestion, coughing and wheezing and common lung diseases as well as sleep apnea and insomnia, among other conditions.
