Our goal is to help you live the life you envisioned for yourself with the best health and quality of life possible. We understand that living with CF is challenging, but our team is here to work with you through good and bad times.

Our multidisciplinary team will ensure that your care is truly comprehensive wherever you are, in clinic, in the hospital or at home. The team currently consists of four adult board certified pulmonologists specialized in CF and non-CF bronchiectasis, one nurse practitioners, as well as a respiratory therapist, dietician, psychologist, social worker and physical therapist. Our team is like a big family and we believe that communication and continuity of care is key for success. We will see you in clinic during your quarterly visits (every three months) and additional visits around acute illnesses. We will also provide care when admitted to the University of Miami Hospital.

As part of the University of Miami, we work with the Adult Heart and Lung Program at the Miami Transplant Institute for our patients who need lung transplants.

As part of the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation’s Therapeutic Development Network (TDN), we have been and continue to be involved in multiple landmark clinical trials for CF. The TDN is the collaborative organization composed of specialists in CF clinical research from different disciplines and institutions that conducted groundbreaking trials that make new therapies available to people with CF.

We also believe that exchanging your experiences and sharing your successes unifies us as a community. Connect with us via social media to tell your story.
