Herman Levy, M.D. Discusses Long-Term Effects of COPD in Health Chat Webinar

Dr. Levy HeadshotJune 4, 2018 – According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, in 2014 over 15 million people reported being diagnosed with Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD), and more than 50 percent of adults with low pulmonary function were not aware that they had COPD. Could you be one of those millions? During this month’s Health Chat Webinar, Herman Levy, M.D., Southeast Georgia Physician Associates-Pulmonary Medicine, presents “Long-Term Effects of COPD” to help people better understand COPD, its comorbidities, symptoms and treatments.

“During this presentation, we will discuss the diseases classified under COPD, including emphysema, chronic bronchitis, non-reversible asthma and bronchiectasis,” says Levy, “as well as common treatments and tests, signs and symptoms.”


Levy completed his medical degree at University of Heidelberg in Heidelberg, Germany. A board-certified internal medicine physician specializing in the diagnosis and treatment of lung diseases and cancer, he believes in a holistic approach to medicine, treating the whole patient, not just a particular organ system.
