WHERE I PROVIDE CARE
Profile
ABOUT ME

I always find it very rewarding to see people getting better with the help of my knowledge. My passion is to find out and treat disease processes in the human body with the interaction of art and science of medicine. I have a special interest in pulmonary diseases and critical care medicine. Whether I am in the pulmonary clinic or in the ICU, I get to connect with my patients and their families, listen to them carefully to understand their need and deliver the best individualized, most updated and highest quality care. I see the full spectrum of lung diseases in my clinic, from newly symptomatic patients who need a diagnosis and evaluation to chronic lung diseases requiring long term follow ups. My goal is to educate my patients about their disease processes, different treatment options and help them choose the best option for them. When I am not working, I love spending time with my family, reading and traveling.
