Pulmonary and Critical Care of Atlanta has hired Dr. Abubakr Chaudhry as the newest physician at its practice in Sandy Springs. Dr. Chaudhry joins a team of medical professionals who are trained in internal medicine, pulmonary and critical care.
Dr. Chaudhry pursued an academic position at University Hospitals Cleveland Medical Center, where he helped build the Critical Care Ultrasound Program for the physicians in training. In addition to his clinical work, Dr. Chaudhry is committed to pursuing research that will advance the future of pulmonary care and his work has been presented at national conferences and published in premier academic journals.

In addition, he treats asthma, COPD, interstitial lung disease and pulmonary embolic disease.
“Atlanta has had a special place in my heart ever since I completed my fellowship training at Emory University,” he said. “The people here have warm hearts and a genuinely welcoming nature. There is nothing better than southern hospitality. I felt at home from the moment I came back.”
