The Yale-ILD Center

The Yale-ILD Center is an internationally recognized center of excellence at Yale School of Medicine and Yale-New Haven Hospital, under the leadership of Dr. Erica Herzog, director, and Dr. Danielle Antin-Ozerkis, medical director. The interstitial lung diseases are difficult to diagnose and treat, and represent a body of pulmonary diseases that often require tertiary referral from community physicians, including experienced pulmonologists.

  • The multidisciplinary Yale-ILD Center was established in 1997 to address the needs of these patients. The Center offers patients significant expertise and support in multiple areas, including treatment of complex lung diseases, the opportunity to participate in clinical and translational studies, and the chance to receive experimental therapy. We also work tirelessly to conduct research into the causes and potential cures for ILD and participate wholeheartedly in the education and support of patients, providers, and caregivers.

  • To refer a patient, you may fax records to (203) 785-4787. You may also contact our office administrator at (203) 785-4198. Please leave a voice mail message and we will contact you.
