Biography

My love for Milwaukee comes from its 4 seasons, its people, and its diversity. I practice at Milwaukee’s oldest hospital, the one established by the Franciscan sisters. I have practiced here for 33 years. As Academic Chairman of Medicine here, I educate the next generation of physicians—medical students, physician assistant students, interns and residents. I have also mentored some pulmonary (lung) physicians that practice in different parts of the country. An unexpected asthma attack while I was a resident kindled my interest in pulmonary medicine, because I learned the hard way what it is to be out of breath. That brought me an understanding of human suffering and empathy for my patients. I consider myself a well-trained pulmonary physician. I am a volunteer for the Lung Association; I also served as Chief Editor of a renowned Textbook of Medicine for its 2 editions.
