I am a Board Certified Internal, Pulmonary and Critical Care Medicine Physician working at the County Hospital of San Jose: Santa Clara Valley Medical Center.
I take care of a wide range of patients with Pulmonary disease ranging from those whom I see in the clinic to those who are critically ill on life support in the Intensive Care Unit. In addition to my role in the treatment of patients I am part of the teaching faculty for the Internal Medicine Residency program at Santa Clara Valley. I also have an appointment as a Clinical Associate Professor (Affiliated) at Stanford University School of Medicine since I teach the Pulmonary and Critical Medicine fellows. I am fellowship site director of the Stanford Pulmonary Critical care fellowship and Critical Care fellowship program at SCVMC.
As a Pulmonary specialist I take care of patients with a range of diseases including but not exclusive to COPD, ILD, asthma, lung cancer, pulmonary arterial hypertension, pleural disease and lung cancer.
I also work as a full time Critical Care physician in the Medical Intensive Care Unit and manage a wide variety of conditions. These conditions include septic shock, respiratory failure, post cardiopulmonary arrest, ARDS, fulminant hepatic failure, drug overdose, coma and acute on chronic multiorgan failure. I am keen to engage with the families of patients who are critically ill in the ICU. I help families understand the spectrum of interventions that are possible for their loved ones from complex organ support to providing comfort care when patients are at the end of their life.
My goal as a physician is to help diagnose and treat the diseases of my patients in a scientific, evidence based, holistic and humane manner.
