Patient Experience with Dr. Weist
Get to know Pediatric Pulmonologist Dr. Andrea Weist, who serves the population of Indianapolis, Indiana. Andrea Weist, MD, is a Pediatric Pulmonologist at the Riley Hospital for Children Pulmonary, and is affiliated with Indiana University Health and IU Health North Hospital. Dr. Andrea Weist is a highly experienced and respected physician who has been in practice for more than two decades. Her acclaimed career in medicine began in 1996 when she graduated with her Medical Degree from the University of Pittsburgh School of Medicine in Pennsylvania. Dr. West then completed a residency and fellowship at the Indiana University School of Medicine, with whom she remains associated. Dr. Weist is board certified in Pediatric Pulmonology by the American Board of Pediatrics and is renowned across Indiana and beyond for her expertise in treating lung and breathing conditions in infants, children and adolescents. She is particularly known as a specialist in the treatment of cystic fibrosis, acute bronchitis, infant lung disease, asthma, and chronic lung disease during prematurity and infancy. Alongside her practice, Dr. Weist serves as an Assistant Professor of Pediatrics at the Indiana University School of Medicine. Pulmonary medicine is the subspecialty of internal medicine that focuses on the diagnosis and management of disorders of the respiratory system, including the lungs, upper airways, thoracic cavity, and chest wall. Although most common respiratory problems are treated by general internists and other specialty physicians, internists practicing pulmonary medicine (often referred to as “pulmonologists”) are frequently called upon to help diagnose unknown disorders and assist in managing difficult, unusual, or complicated diseases of the respiratory system. Pulmonologists have expertise in structural, inflammatory, infectious, and neoplastic disorders of the lung parenchyma, pleura and airways, pulmonary vascular disease and its effect on the cardiovascular system, and detection and prevention of occupational and environmental causes of lung disease. Diseases commonly evaluated and treated by pulmonologists include asthma, chronic obstructive lung disease (COPD), emphysema, lung cancer, interstitial and occupational lung diseases, complex lung and pleural infections including tuberculosis, pulmonary hypertension, and cystic fibrosis. Some pulmonologists focus on sleep-disordered breathing (such as sleep apnea) and may provide diagnostic and therapeutic services in sleep laboratories.
