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.

Fine doctor!

National Jewish Health PatientJune, 2019
[PHI]. Dr Stephens is professional, absolutely knowledgeable and has wonderful bedside manner. She explained everything she felt I needed for the pulmonary issues I had experienced [PHI]. After all the test she went over the results of every test and what the results meant to me. [PHI]. I have absolute confidence in her and feel that I really matter to her. What a great doctor. I would recommend her any and every time someone would ask for a pulmonologist.

Provider was a little brusque with me for some reason and seemed uninterested in certain progresses I had made or tests that I had done.
