BiographyI am Medical Director of the Preadmission Testing Area. My interests are in the preoperative evaluation and risk assessment for patients undergoing anesthesia and surgery. I also have an interest in respiratory physiology and the pathophysiology of respiratory failure. I am trained in critical care and spend time in the Respiratory Acute Care Unit taking care of patients with chronic respiratory failure.

I serve on the departmental QA committee and the Clinical Competency committee.
