Olympic Medical Physicians Specialty Clinic - Sequim Pulmonologist Gur Raj Deol, MD, authored an article that was recently published in CHEST, the leading journal for the American College of Chest Physicians.
The January issue included the article “Ultrasound Accurately Reflects the Jugular Venous Examination but Underestimates Central Venous Pressure.” Dr. Deol, the primary author, performed the research during his pulmonary and critical care fellowship.
“Only a small number of physicians are ever published in a prestigious journal such as CHEST,” says Pulmonologist Rebecca Corley, MD, a provider at OMP Specialty Clinic - Sequim. “We are proud of Dr. Deol’s accomplishment, and we appreciate all the hard work that went into his research and authoring of the article.”
Dr. Deol joined the OMP Specialty Clinic division in July 2010 and sees patients in Sequim and Port Angeles. He also provides pulmonary and critical care services to inpatients at Olympic Memorial Hospital in Port Angeles. He completed his fellowship training at University of Iowa Medical Center.
