Special Interests

Clinical Interests:

My clinical interests are in interstitial lung disease and critical care medicine, specifically acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS) and septic shock.

Research Interests:

The focus of my research is on mechanisms leading to injury of the lungs, as well as how the lungs can be repaired following injury. Our lab has a particular interest in how macrophages in the lung regulate these processes.

very good provider

National Jewish Health PatientJune, 2020
Good discussion that lead us to next steps. Dr. Mohning showed a curiosity and had clearly done his homework regards my situation.

National Jewish Health PatientApril, 2020
*Dr. Mohning was on our level in an examination room and he chatted and was not rushed - Yet he explained the what - why - how - treatments - Rx's - questions to ask [my home] doctors - all while being released and sincere -

National Jewish Health PatientMarch, 2020
Outstanding for a medical clinic and it's entire staff. A janitor saw us wandering the hall and asked if he could help.

National Jewish Health PatientMarch, 2020
Dr Mohning and [my other NJ doctor] are exceptional medical providers. They are smart, calm, informative and very clear communicators.

National Jewish Health PatientMarch, 2020
for the first time ever someone actually listened to me and didnt just brush my concerns off [PHI]. I felt like dr Michael actually cared and wanted to listen

National Jewish Health PatientFebruary, 2020
Dr Michael Mohning is one of my favorite Doctors I've ever worked with. He is very polite, listens and gives great feed back.

National Jewish Health PatientFebruary, 2020
Very pleased.

National Jewish Health PatientFebruary, 2020
Dr. Did an excellent job explaining procedures that I had just completed as well as a testing process to proceed. Explained a game plan to relieve my symptoms, with approval of my insurance plan.

National Jewish Health PatientFebruary, 2020
seems overly focused on my weight. I was thin when I was his age too.
