My primary clinical work involves care for patients with chronic kidney disease, including lifestyle, diet, medication management as well as management of options as kidney failure approaches with clinics at Eastowne, Burlington and Department of Public Safety. I am also Co-director of the Kidney Palliative Care Clinic, which provides specialized palliative care services for patients with kidney disease. My research focuses on applications of ultrasound in all aspects of care for patients with kidney disease, including contrast-enhanced ultrasound and point-of-care ultrasound.
