Suncoast Lung Center Practice Announcement

After 38 years practicing Pulmonary and Critical Care medicine, I have decided to retire and spend more time with family and friends and develop hobbies long considered.  I will be closing my office at the Suncoast Lung Center, 3920 Bee Ridge Rd., Sarasota, FL on December 31, 2021.

The office will remain open and available to see patients until the end of the year.

Dr. Brian Angsten, a Board Certified Pulmonologist, Critical Care specialist, and Sleep Medicine physician with whom I have had over a decade-long professional relationship has agreed to assume care for my patients from the Suncoast Lung Center.  Beginning January 1, 2022, all patient records will be transferred to his office, located at 2914 University Pkwy, Sarasota, FL.  His phone number is 941.351.9940.

Thank you all for placing your trust with my office at the Suncoast Lung Center all these years.  It has been a gratifying personal and professional experience that I will continue to cherish well past my retirement!
