About Me

I am a pulmonary and critical care specialist with a focus in interventional pulmonology. I have specialty training in using minimally invasive techniques to diagnose and treat problems in and around the lungs. I stay up-to-date on the most recent advances in the field and use innovative technologies for advanced bronchoscopy and pleuroscopy when appropriate. I try to be very open and honest in discussing the various approaches to diagnosis and management options with my patients. I believe that the best approach to any medical problem always involves collaboration with the patient and their family, taking into account the unique circumstances and preferences of each individual. I enjoy spending my free time with my family and large dog, cooking, traveling and staying active outdoors.
