Personal Statement

As a critical care physician I have the unique opportunity to care for patients when they are in most need of medical care. Working as a team with nurses and my fellow physicians we have the experience, expertise, and technology to provide the most up-to-date care for all of our patients. When patients are suffering from a critical illness, our goal is to provide the best care to ensure a rapid recovery and to restore the highest quality of life possible.

As a pulmonologist I have the opportunity to care for patients with a broad range of diseases that affect the lungs and chest. These include asthma, emphysema, pneumonia, and a host of other diseases that can cause breathlessness. During my fellowship training my research focused on inhibition of mucus production in airway cells, which is a major source of morbidity and mortality in patients with obstructive diseases of the lung. My goal is to work with patients to build an understanding of their disease process and construct a treatment plan to help them breathe easier.
