Pulmonologist Profile

I am a firm believer that the best medicine happens when there is a solid partnership between the doctor and patient. So I am a doctor who listens to his patients and who is honest with them.

I lost of my grandparents to pulmonary tuberculosis by the time I was 8 years old. I never got to spend time with them. So from that moment, I was very interested in lung disease and lung problems. As I was going through my medical school training, I realized that pulmonology is a field that is very complex because it interacts with so many body systems. Those challenges led me to make this my future work.

As a pulmonologist, I specialize in treating patients with lung conditions. I see patients age 18 and up who are dealing with issues such as COPD (Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease), asthma, shortness of breath or chronic cough.

There have been great advancements in the treatment of conditions such as asthma through the years. Today we can treat these issues in many different ways.

My goal as a physician is ultimately to help my patients feel better. I will always listen to them with compassion and respect. I want my patients to enjoy their life to the fullest with their families, and we work together to help them achieve that. That is what makes me happiest in my work - when my patient and their family are satisfied and when the patient tells me they are now feeling comfortable. I have helped many people in my career and I want to continue to help people further.

Outside of helping my patients, I enjoy spending time with my daughters and wife, gardening and reading.
