Pulmonary Care

Vail Health’s Pulmonology program is proud to offer services in our new Dillon Health Center as well as in Vail. Highlighted pulmonary offerings include bronchoscopies at Vail Health, in-clinic spirometry testing and diagnostic six-minute walks. Many of these services are not typically available in a small rural community like ours, but Vail Health believes in offering health care services where our residents live, work and play.

The expanded pulmonology program will be led by Dr. Joseph Forrester and Dr. Chakradhar Kotaru from Critical Care & Pulmonary Consultants, with the support of three additional physicians to ensure a full rotation of services. 

Both physicians are board certified in internal medicine, pulmonary disease, sleep medicine and critical care. Dr. Forrester will be seeing patients in our Vail office once a month and in our new Dillon Health Center once a month. Dr. Kotaru will also be seeing patients in our Vail office once a month.
