Meet the Doctor

For over 20 years my clinical and private practice expertise has been to effectively diagnose and treat acute and chronic respiratory and lung diseases in infants and children. My research interests have focused on the genetic causes of cystic fibrosis and other lung diseases. In my private practice and hospital work, my goal is to combine world-class medical care for your child with an understanding of your family’s needs.
