I am a community and academic pulmonary physician, dedicated to providing quality, evidence-based care to my patients and passionate about educating medical students, residents, and fellows. Patients should be involved in decisions regarding their care, and I strive to provide them the knowledge that they need to make the right decisions based on their goals and values.

I provide general pulmonary care for patients at UR Thompson Pulmonary Clinic in Canandaigua, and inpatient pulmonary consultative services at UR Thompson Hospital and URMC Strong Memorial Hospital. In addition, I am also caring for patients at the Bronchiectasis Center at Mary Parkes Asthma Center in Henrietta. I have clinical expertise in the fields of asthma, COPD, sarcoidosis, lung nodules, interstitial lung disease, bronchiectasis, and tuberculosis, but as a general pulmonologist, I welcome patients with all types of pulmonary disease. I have experience in procedures including bronchoscopy, thoracentesis, and procedures required to care for the critically ill patient.
