“I believe the most important part of my job is to provide hope. Patient contact and interactions are very important to me. I help people cope with very intimate and difficult issues and provide them comfort by also addressing the emotional and social implications of their illness. I find personal gratification in taking sophisticated disease information and breaking it down to a level the patient can understand. Giving patients the information they understand and need empowers them to make the best decisions for their health care.
During residency, I discovered how much I enjoyed I enjoyed the diversity of pulmonology and critical care. As a pulmonary and critical care physician, I am not limited to one specific area of patient care and maintain skills that encompass a broad spectrum of general medicine. I must understand the basics of all medical specialty areas and my work is not the same day to day and week to week.
I have a special interest in the use of bedside ultrasound to assess and aid in multiple components of the patient’s diagnostic work-up and care. I work diligently to maintain the highest levels of knowledge and skills and make it a priority to keep up-to-date with the latest technologies, studies and advances in medicine.”
