GREATER AKRON — Lung, Allergy and Sleep (LAS) Centers of America Inc. is a group practice of pulmonary care, sleep medicine and allergy physicians with several locations.

The offices include: the Akron General Medical Center (AGMC) office at 224 W. Exchange St., No. 380; the AGMC Health and Wellness Center — West, 4125 Medina Road; and the Canal Place office at 520 S. Main St., Suite 2436B. There are also offices in the Greater Cleveland area.

LAS is affiliated with AGMC, University Hospitals Ahuja Medical Center, Summa Akron City Hospital and Medina General Hospital, a Cleveland Clinic hospital.

The practice includes 14 physicians that provide pulmonary, critical care and sleep and allergy services, according to Teresa Bieber, pulmonary and sleep diagnostics and therapeutics manager.

“We are the largest group of this type in Northeast Ohio,” said Bieber. “We are and have been involved in various clinical trials, and we are up-to-date on the latest treatments available to patients. We are experts on diagnosing symptoms.”

Bieber said LAS specializes in conditions involving the lungs and breathing, problems with sleep, allergies and immunological diseases. She added patients who might consider coming to see doctors at LAS include those with symptoms such as chronic coughing and a runny nose, shortness of breath, asthma, COPD (chronic obstructive pulmonary disease), which she said is a leading cause of death in this country, as well as trouble sleeping.

Bieber said LAS has affiliations with most major hospitals in the Akron/Cleveland area, and its doctors can continue to help patients if they have to visit a hospital.

Referrals are not needed to see a doctor at LAS, according to Bieber.

“We have the latest technology in the office to treat patients, but our staff also offers personal service,” said Bieber. “We have that ‘old medicine’ feel where physicians respond to patients’ needs. All our doctors grew up in this area and stayed to provide service to their home community. We offer timely appointments and a flexible schedule for visits.

Call 1-855-LAS-APPT to make an appointment at any office. For more information, visit www.lungcenters.com.
