I am a general pulmonologist and critical care physician with a particular clinical interest in diseases that affect the airways of the lungs such as asthma and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease. My current research interest involves how oral health may affect patients with chronic lung disease. In addition to my outpatient lung clinic, I work in the medical intensive care unit where I am involved in medical education and serve as the critical care site director for the medical school.
