Meet Our Doctor

No matter the cause of the respiratory difficulty, the respiratory therapy team strives to decrease a patient's length of stay in the hospital as well as provide education and hands-on training to help patients utilize respiratory aids to help them breathe easier at home.

“When we first arrive, we see patients who are afraid. They are starved for oxygen and scared because they can’t get enough air. By the time we leave, they are more relaxed and breathing easier. It’s what we do many times every day but it never gets routine. Every patient needs our help. It’s why we do what we do.”
