Helping Children Breathe Easier

Most of us take breathing for granted. But when a child has respiratory problems, every breath is a reason for concern.

Dr. Peter Schochet specializes in childhood breathing disorders. His work as a pediatric pulmonologist gives him a special understanding of the symptoms and treatments particular to young patients.

A board certified pediatrician, Dr. Schochet knows that treating and diagnosing children is different from caring for adults. And as a father of four, he is deeply sensitive to the connection between the physical and emotional well-being of young patients.

"Pediatric medicine is always family medicine. When a child has breathing problems, it's like the entire family is holding its breath."
