Professional Statement

In my clinical practice, I see adult patients with diagnosed or suspected genetic disease. This includes both chromosomal abnormalities, as well as single gene disorders. I see patients with a variety of disorders, including Tuberous Sclerosis, Neurofibromatosis, connective tissue disease including Ehlers-Danlos syndrome and Marfan syndrome, and familial cancer syndromes. I have a particular clinical interest in patients with cardiopulmonary disease.

As a physician-scientist, I have a research focus on postural orthostatic hypotension (POTS) and pulmonary artery hypertension (PAH).
