How would you like to
I hope my patients remember me as the best physician and
pulmonologist they’ve ever been treated by.
What is most
important to you when helping patients?
Doing what is best for them. I put my patients first, and I
make sure my team does as well. I like to make sure my patients are engaged and
understand what is going on while under my care. I also like to communicate
with their family members and explain everything we are doing to treat their
occupation would you choose?
I would like to be a writer. When I retire, I will write
books about all of my different experiences.
What do you like most
about your job?
I like that I get to help and treat a wide variety of
patients. I see the critically sick in the intensive care unit, as well as
pulmonary patients with respiratory conditions. I also love to perform
interventional pulmonology procedures, which makes me unique.
