Care Philosophy

I have always wanted to be a doctor. I chose lung disease because of how disturbing it is to not be able to breathe. It is a field that is challenging because of the wide spectrum of different diseases that occur. We take care of many unusual lung diseases as well as many common disorders. In addition we care for many infections and cancers. We care for the sickest patients in the intensive care unit. We care for patients who stop breathing during sleep without their knowledge. Consequently the large variety of illnesses that I have become involved with remains a daily challenge. That challenge drew me to this field. I enjoy the satisfaction that occurs when patients return and now can breath much better. That I find very fulfilling. I have enjoyed many endeavors outside of work that have also brought me additional challenges. I participated in triathlons for six years as well as road racing. I was a pilot for the next six years. I have enjoyed snow skiing for the last 30 years. Now I enjoy traveling and learning more about people and diversity and the flow of life. All of this has made my eyes bigger and my brain more absorbent.Read more
