Special Interests

My clinical interest is providing the best possible care for patients with pulmonary disease and critical illness. 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.

Dr. Amanda Stephens listened intently to all my concerns, and I never got the impression that she was trying to rush me. I asked my husband to sit in and he was also impressed with Dr.Stephens' professionalism.Although that was my first meeting with Dr. Stephens, I have the utmost confidence in her medical expertise.

I had a lung issue for more than 8 weeks. Dr. Stevens listened, understood my concerns and the unusual nature of my respitory issue (I don't smoke) and also my concern that I would be leaving the country and did not have time for a battery of tests and then waiting etc. I was very impressed.
