About

Bio

I am a board certified Pulmonary medicine physician in Miami, Florida. Have been in practice now for 25 years. I deal with all aspects of pulmonary medicine with special interests in asthma, sleep, interstitial fibrosis and COPD. Currently hold staff privileges at Baptist and South Miami hospitals as well as Kendall Regional Medical center. Pulmonary medicine trained at Loyola University, in Maywood Illinois and Hines VA 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.
