Clinical Interest for Patients
Throughout medical school and pediatric residency, the pediatric pulmonologists always were very happy and really seemed to love their jobs. When I did my first rotation with pediatric pulmonary in my first year of residency, I found that as a pulmonologist, you get to work all over the hospital and have close continuity with your patients throughout their lifetime in the clinic. I also fell in love with doing bronchoscopies during residency and then continued to grow that interest since fellowship.
I have been practicing at Children's Hospital Colorado in Colorado Springs since 2017. I have the opportunity to care for children with many different breathing concerns. My patients are from all over Southern Colorado and New Mexico, ages range from newborn to late teens. I am so lucky to be a part of the supportive Colorado Springs community.
