In addition to identifying and treating the causes of shortness of breath, I am interested in providing multidisciplinary and integrative treatment for the symptom of breathlessness in the outpatient setting. In the inpatient and intensive care settings, I strive to offer as many state of the art interventions as possible along with helping patients and families to determine how we can use these therapies in a way that aligns with their values and goals.
