Care Philosophy

My goal is to provide the highest level of care and support to my patients and their family members. The patient-physician interaction is of utmost importance to me and close communication throughout a difficult situation with patients and family members helps me better achieve my goals medically. Close coordination with other specialties for complex pulmonary and critical illness are also very important keys to success.
