Posted: 11/19/2019

Pulmonary and critical care specialist Dr. Shazia Choudry has joined Health Quest Medical Practice, now part of Nuvance Health. She will work with the Division of Pulmonology, 21 Reade Place, Suite 100, Poughkeepsie.

“My goal is to offer compassionate, quality care to patients and help develop treatment plans that fit their needs to guide them toward recovery,” Choudry said.

Pulmonology is the study of diseases affecting the respiratory tract. Pulmonologists, also known as pulmonary disease specialists, specialize in the diagnosis and treatment of lung conditions and diseases.

Choudry is trained in bronchoscopy, a procedure that looks inside the small airways of the lungs using a small camera inserted through the nasal cavity.

She also specializes in critical care. She will diagnose, treat and manage critically ill patients with sepsis, respiratory failure, stroke, heart failure, multiple organ failure and traumatic injuries impacting the brain and other organs.

Prior to joining the medical practice, she served as a pulmonary and critical care physician at Glens Falls Hospital in Glens Falls, NY, and Ellis Hospital in Schenectady, NY.

Choudry completed her fellowship in pulmonary and critical care at Albany Medical Center in New York, where she was named chief fellow for two years. She was an internal medicine resident at New Hanover Medical Center in Wilmington, NC.

She received her medical degree from Allama Iqbal Medical College in Lahore, Pakistan.

In her spare time, Choudry enjoys tennis and traveling to new destinations with her family.
