About

Bio

I'm a third-generation physician practicing in Nashville and Middle Tennessee. I did Internal Medicine at UVa and then Pulmonary Medicine and Allergy at Vanderbilt. I've been in private practice for 10 years and I'm past president of the Tennessee Society of Asthma, Allergy, and Immunology. When I'm not working, I'm usually schlepping my kids to soccer or lacrosse or riding my bike. I recently completed my 10 year maintenance of certification

Response to my question came from related responses of questions previously asked. I feel that "my" question was not answered.
