Special Interests

My special interest is state-of-the-art comprehensive care of patients with diffuse parenchymal lung diseases. Knowledge and diagnostic methods continue to improve our ability to provide more precise diagnoses and therapies to preserve quality of life and prevent disease progression. I also believe shared decision making is an integral part of effective and compassionate care.
