Cough Clinic Overview

The Mayo Clinic Cough Clinic helps people who have chronic cough, which is a cough that lasts eight weeks or more. A cough can be a sign of another disease — asthma, gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD), tumors, fibrosis, bronchiectasis — or caused by medications. Determining the cause of chronic cough is crucial to effective treatment. In many cases, more than one underlying condition may be causing a chronic cough.

In the Cough Clinic, pulmonologists are part of a multidisciplinary team that works together to diagnose and treat this common condition that can be very complex and difficult to treat. Your pulmonologist may work with experts in otolaryngology, speech pathology, allergy and gastroenterology. You will receive a comprehensive evaluation for cough and an individualized treatment plan.
