Mark W. Lischner, M.D., is a critical care pulmonologist who has worked for more than 40 years in California’s Sacramento area, often using his personal experiences to guide him through his career.

His areas of expertise as a disease specialist include asbestosis, asthma, interstitial fibrosis, and sarcoidosis, a disease Lischner lived through himself. Sarcoidosis is a potentially fatal inflammatory disease that usually affects the lungs. Its cause remains unknown, and it often improves as quickly as it appears.

Fast Fact: Dr. Lischner, a sarcoidosis survivor, spent two months as a pulmonary specialist aboard the USS Response in Vietnam.

He also works with patients suffering from pleural mesothelioma, the most common form of mesothelioma cancer which affects the lining of the lungs. As with asbestosis, mesothelioma is caused by exposure to asbestos.

Pulmonary Specialist

Lischner began his medical career as a pulmonary specialist for the U.S. Navy, serving a stint during the Vietnam War on the hospital ship USS Repose, where he worked under difficult conditions that prepared him for his civilian career.

Shortly after his military service was complete, Lischner moved to Sacramento and began his private practice. His primary duties now are with Sutter Independent Physicians, a group which includes three organizations in the suburbs of Roseville, California. He also has relationships with Sutter Roseville Medical Center, Mercy San Juan Hospital and Mercy Hospital of Folsom.

Lischner graduated from Yale University School of Medicine. He completed his residency in internal medicine at Emory University Hospital in Atlanta, Georgia. He completed his fellowship for pulmonary disease at Albert Einstein College of Medicine in New York City just before his military service began.

Lischner has written extensively on pulmonary diseases in various medical journals. His articles include “Prevalence of Respiratory Symptoms in an Industrial Population.”

Lischner is a diplomat of the American Board of Internal Medicine and a diplomat of the American Board of Pulmonary Disease. He also belongs to the American Thoracic Society, the California Thoracic Society and the American College of Physicians.
