Should I see a PH specialist at a Canadian PH Medical Center?


PH is a complex and serious disease. Because PH is uncommon and difficult to diagnose, many physicians and healthcare workers are not comfortable with recognizing, diagnosing, or treating PH.

There are physicians and healthcare workers across Canada who are interested in PH and committed to providing the best medical care to patients with PH and their families. They have established a network of Canadian PH Medical Centres.

Because of special interest, expertise, and experience in dealing with PH, it is highly recommended that most PH patients be assessed by a PH specialist in one of these Centers.

After diagnosis and initiation of treatment, many patients with PH can continue to be cared for by their own physicians in their local communities, working together with the staff and physicians in a PH Center.
