Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Blair "For the past three decades I have been in fight against lung disease. My colleagues and I in the Lower Manhattan Hospital have been witness to the devastasting effects that lung diseases have caused in this community. Cigarette smoking, allergies, air pollution, resistant chest infections and the toxic residue of the World Trade Center collapse are just some of the factors that have motivated me to carry on the battle against lung disease. I feel privileged to have been a part of the lives of the many patients who have sought my counsel and care. I am especially delighted that the New York Presbyterian Hospital has made the commitment to bring their considerable resources and talents to lower Manhattan. It is truly exciting to be part of a formidable team of health care professionals."
