About

Bio

I am a devoted Pulmonologist and Intensivist, seeing the sickest patients in the hospital. My 10 years of Medical School and Residency and Fellowship training can't be beat. I saw patients at many centers in Chicago and Atlanta during my training - including Grady, Cook County, Emory, University of Illinois, Michael Reese, Christ Hospital, Atlanta VA Medical Center, and others. Now I am with Emory in Lagrange Georgia as well as West GA Medical Center.

Specialties
Doctors may have more than one area of specialty interest. Board certification in a specialty area means the doctor has completed formal training and has practice experience in that specialty, and has passed the certification examination from the corresponding accredited medical specialty board.
