Matthew Haack, M.D.


"It has always been my passion as a clinician to treat illness and improve quality of life outcomes for my patients. It is of great importance to me to help people become educated about the diseases they have and work with them to develop effective long-term treatment strategies to keep them from being limited by their illnesses.

Pulmonary and Critical Care Medicine is a rapidly changing field; I pride myself on staying current in peer-reviewed scientific literature, new techniques and approaches that can enhance patient care.

I am very excited to be back in the state of Georgia serving a diverse array of pulmonary and critical care patients. I believe that personalized treatment strategies for each patient is the most effective way to get them feeling better and living better."
