Pulmonary Medicine Clinic

I believe in providing patients and their families all the available and the needed information to facilitate making the right choice for each individual situation. Taking the time to carefully explain the findings and thoroughly review the available options is important so that a truly informed decision can be made by the patient and their support network. Through careful listening during an honest conversation that allows thoughts to be voiced, feelings to be expressed, and questions to be answered, a relationship built on trust and open communication is established that benefits everyone.
