I also have a particular interest in evaluating and caring for patients with any pulmonary interstitial lung disease (ILD). My research has focused on the abnormally high prevalence of gastroesophageal reflux in Idiopathic Pulmonary Fibrosis (IPF) in an attempt to better define the relationship between the two and potentially lead to new treatment strategies for patients with IPF.
