Dr. Best believes that being able to work both in pulmonology and in critical care medicine provides a great variety of opportunities. He loves to teach both trainees and his patients.
Dr. Best enjoys working with a patient to find what is BEST for them, rather than just pressing forward with a treatment.
Dr. Best is a huge music lover. His first degree was in music and he tries to stay involved as much as he can, whether playing guitar, going to live performances, or just listening to music with friends.
Outside of work, Dr. Best loves to cook and enjoy the outdoors, especially cycling, running, and hiking. He has also become a decent woodworker and enjoys building things for himself and others.
