About Me

I was inspired to pursue medicine by my father, who was a general practitioner. As a child, I was interested in his work and vast medical knowledge, and as a student, I fell in love with learning about the anatomy and physiology of the body and the technological advances that can improve people’s lives.

I specialize in pulmonary medicine and critical care, primarily treating people who have advanced lung diseases that affect their quality of life. Many of my patients benefit from lung transplants, which we provide at the NYU Langone Transplant Institute. I have dedicated the last 17 years of my career to lung transplantation and caring for patients who are waiting for or who have already received a lung transplant. Additionally, I perform advanced pulmonary procedures, such as bronchoscopy, to diagnose lung conditions and manage airway diseases.

Our team at NYU Langone is highly experienced and skilled. We provide individualized care and support for people and their families. Our focus is on our patients—everything we do is with the goal of making our patients the center of our practices. We also research ways to improve the care of potential organ donors and predict complications that may arise after lung transplants, so that we can preemptively treat them.

I am a member of the American College of Chest Physicians, the American Thoracic Society, the International Society for Heart and Lung Transplantation, and the Society of Critical Care Medicine. I have also received a presidential clinical excellence award and have been recognized for my educational efforts in training medical residents and pulmonary medicine and critical care fellows.
