'Understand your relationship with cigarettes and other tobacco products and develop a personalized approach to help you break this habit.
Educate yourself about early detection of lung cancer. If you smoke or used to smoke, you may be a candidate for lung cancer screening between the ages of 50 and 80.
Quitting smoking may involve nicotine replacement therapy, pharmacotherapy (medications that reduce the desire for smoking), or a combination of both.
Quitting smoking will bring numerous immediate and long-term benefits. Why not schedule an appointment today?'
