Short Bio: I have been practicing Medicine for more than thirty years. I have started my research experience as an assistant professor of Medicine at University of Miami in 1990. Later on I started my basic science research at the University of Pittsburg as a fellow in the division of Pulmonary, Allergy, and Critical care Medicine. I was awarded a grant (1995-1997) funded by American Heart Association which evaluated “Smooth muscle-derived nitric oxide-based oxidants as agents of pulmonary microvascular injury”.
I continued my involvement in the clinical research after I started my practice with Palmetto Pulmonary and Bon Secours Health System in Greenville, South Carolina in 1997. This included different treatment options for patients with sleep disordered breathing such as PAP-TAP combination. I serve as a medical director of Sleep Disorder Center for at least 20 years at Bon Secours St. Francis Health System. I am a fellow in The American Academy of Sleep Medicine.
