Sylvia Elaine Szentpetery, MD

Dr. Sylvia Szentpetery recently joined the MUSC family as director of the Pediatric Cystic Fibrosis Center. She received her medical degree from Tulane University in New Orleans, Louisiana.

She is skilled in flexible bronchoscopy as well as evaluation through pulmonary function testing, which both aid in the diagnosis of lung disease. At MUSC, Dr. Szentpetery sees patients with any and all respiratory problems, including cystic fibrosis, asthma, chronic cough, chronic lung disease of prematurity, and recurrent pneumonia.
