Carolina Pulmonary Opens New Office in Northeast Columbia

West Columbia, S.C. - Carolina Pulmonary has opened a new office in Northeast Columbia. This Lexington Medical Center physician practice provides pulmonary and sleep medicine consultations, pulmonary function testing and chest X-rays. Conveniently located off Farrow Road near Interstates 20 and 77, this new location will help the practice better serve its patients.

“We look forward to supporting our growing network of family care and internal medicine practitioners as they expand into Northeast Columbia,” said Richard Monk, MD, FCCP, medical director for Carolina Pulmonary.

The practice already operates a location in West Columbia.

C. Gregory Cauthen, MD, FCCP; Francis M. Dayrit, MD, FCCP; W. Shawn Ghent, MD, FCCP; C. David Perry, MD, FCCP; and Mohamed S. Soliman, MD, FCCP, will practice at the new location. Dr. Cauthen, Dr. Ghent and Dr. Perry joined Carolina Pulmonary in October 2017.

“Opening a second office in Northeast Columbia not only better serves our established patients from the Lexington Sleep Solutions sleep lab in Northeast Columbia, but with the additions of Dr. Cauthen, Dr. Ghent and Dr. Perry to our practice, it supports our new patients in Sumter, Elgin and Camden,” said Sunshine Cobb, MHA, CMPE, division administrator.

Carolina Pulmonary will share its new location with Lexington Brain and Spine Institute, a Lexington Medical Center physician practice. There will be eight exam rooms for pulmonary and sleep medicine patients and a complete pulmonary function testing lab, as well as a new X-ray suite to complement the existing MRI capabilities at Lexington Brain and Spine Institute.
