In brief: See Pulmonologist

Any patient diagnosed with pulmonary fibrosis should be seen by a pulmonologist who can confirm the diagnosis, follow their course and offer appropriate treatments.

In brief: See a specialist

There are several different causes of pulmonary fibrosis.
Depending on the cause, there may be treatments or not. There are several clinical trials underway for idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis/ usual interstitial pneumonitis; if this is what you have consider referal for enrollment in a trial.
