Duke Health Provider What's this?
Insurance

Duke Health contracts with most major health insurance carriers and transplant networks, including the ones listed below. Before scheduling your appointment, we strongly recommend you contact your insurance company to verify that the Duke Health location or provider you plan to visit is included in your network. Your insurance company will also be able to inform you of any co-payments, co–insurances, or deductibles that will be your responsibility. If you proceed in scheduling an appointment and your health insurance benefits do not participate with Duke, your out of pocket liability may be higher. We will contact you regarding your coverage and patient liability. If you are uninsured, learn more about our financial assistance policy.

WHERE I PROVIDE CARE
Profile
ABOUT ME

I currently see patients with asthma, chronic obstructive lung disease, and other lung disorders that cause patients shortness of breath. As a child, my dream was to be the third baseman for the Philadelphia Phillies. When reality intervened, I wanted to be like my dad. He has practiced medicine for 40 years and has been my role model. He taught me that the core of being a physician is the doctor-patient relationship developed over time through mutual respect, trust, and hard work. Navigating through our health care system is often complex and frustrating. My goal is to be an advocate for my patients and to work with them in achieving their health care needs.
