Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Lugogo "My practice comprises of patients with asthma chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) sarcoidosis bronchiectasis and other lung diseases. I am the Director of the Duke Asthma Allergy and Airway Center and enjoy taking care of patients with complex pulmonary problems. I believe in providing care for patients in a compassionate way and I encourage open communication and honesty. I also work in the medical intensive care unit taking care of patients and helping families to understand the complex issues facing their loved ones as they struggle with critical illness. I value having the privilege to be present when patients are most in need of care and support. The interactions that I am able to have on a daily basis with patients families and colleagues bring me great joy and satisfaction."

Dr. Lugogo was very personable and explained things to me. She showed me my CT scan result and explained what it meant. I felt very confident in her care.
