Pulmonologist joins HQMP in Poughkeepsie

Posted: 9/18/2018

Dr. Daniel Laurie has joined the Health Quest Medical Practice Division of Pulmonology in Poughkeepsie.

“Our aim is to deliver treatment and preventative care in a compassionate manner, with minimal disruption to our patients’ lives,” Laurie said.

Pulmonology is the study of diseases impacting the airways that assist with oxygen transport throughout the body. Pulmonologists, also known as pulmonary disease specialists, diagnose and treat diseases that impact the structure and function of the lungs.

A native of London, Laurie has lived in New York City for nine years.

Most recently, Laurie served as a pulmonary and critical care specialist at North Shore University Hospital in Manhasset, NY, and Long Island Jewish Medical Center in Queens.

He also managed the intensive care units of more than 50 hospitals in 25 states through telemedicine, the use of telecommunication and information technology to provide clinical healthcare remotely.

The intensive care unit, also called the ICU, provides long-term and consistent monitoring of patients with life-threatening injuries, such as cardiac arrest, stroke, burns and more.

In addition to pulmonology, he also specializes in critical care, treating the most severely ill patients in the hospital who experience circulatory and respiratory failure.

Laurie earned his medical degree and graduated summa cum laude from the Imperial College School of Medicine in South Kensington, London, and later became a Member of the Royal College of Physicians, also in London.

Upon moving to the United States in 2009, he completed his internal medicine residency at Long Island Jewish Medical Center and a fellowship in pulmonary and critical care medicine at New York University Langone Medical Center in Manhattan, previously New York University Medical Center, in Manhattan.

In his free time, Laurie enjoys playing the violin with various community orchestras in New York City.

The Division of Pulmonology is at 21 Reade Place, Suite 1000, Poughkeepsie, and can be reached at 845-214-1880 (TTY 1-800-421-1220).
