Frequently Asked Questions

Does SEC Lung provide primary care services?

No, we have limited our practice to respiratory health and sleep medicine.

Do I always need to have an appointment in order to be seen at SEC Lung?

New patients do require an appointment in order to allow our staff the opportunity to gather information necessary for your initial visit. We will do our best to rapidly work you into our schedule. Return patients (patients previously seen by Dr. Garver) do not require an appointment if there is an urgent problem, although we do ask that you call ahead to find the best time of the day for us to work you in to our daily schedule.

Does Dr. Garver provide second opinions if I have already seen another lung doctor?

Yes, we are happy to offer a “second look” at your problem, even if you have already been evaluated by another lung doctor.

What does “SEC” stand for in the practice name?

One possibility is that SEC stands for South Eastern Conference of college athletics, since we are located in the heart of SEC fan territory, and we are SEC football fans. Another possibility is that is stands for “Southern Excellence in Care”. Please come see us and you can decide.
