Patient Care Philosophy

At Northwest Hospital and Medical Center, our group of pulmonary physicians cares for patients with a wide range of disorders including asthma, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, chest infections, bronchiectasis, lung cancer, interstitial lung disease, sarcoidosis, pulmonary hypertension and neuromuscular disease. Additionally we care for patients with critical illness and perform outpatient procedures including bronchoscopy and thoracentesis.

I strive to build a therapeutic relationship with every patient I care for, with the goal of helping patients with respiratory disease improve their health and quality of life. I am excited to help my patients understand their illness and encourage them to become active participants in their care.

Clinical Interests

Asthma; chronic obstructive pulmonary disease; bronchiectasis; chest infections.
