- Palliative Care Integration for Patients with Chronic Respiratory Diseases
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.

This survey is about the patient care experience and does not address crucial characteristics like medical decision-making, prescribing the best therapy, and patient outcomes.
Responses are measured on a scale of 1 to 5, with 5 being the best score. Learn more about our patient satisfaction survey
