ILD Program Faculty

“Our role in the care of patients with ILDs is to put together the pieces of a puzzle. Patients often come to us with an incomplete picture or perhaps pieces missing. Our team helps find those missing pieces within a patients' family history, from additional testing or subtle clinical examination findings which allows us to bring patients to an accurate diagnosis. This step is what helps guide treatment of their disease, longitudinal follow up and, most importantly, helps patients and their families better understand their disease.”
