Dr. Razma is Board Certified in pulmonary disease and sleep medicine. Dr. Razma earned his medical degree from the University of Illinois and completed his fellowship at Loyola University Medical Center.
As the only full-time board physician certified in pulmonary and sleep medicine in the four corners, Razma has specialized skills and knowledge to diagnose, prevent and treat issues affecting the lungs, as well as sleep disorders. “For pulmonary medicine, I see people with any lung disorder. Some of those include breathing problems such as asthma, COPD, Interstitial Lung Disease, Occupational Lung Disease and Pulmonary Hypertension. For sleep medicine, I treat all sleep disorders – including insomnia, narcolepsy and obstructive sleep apnea. I became interested in sleep medicine because it is a growing field and we are understanding more and more how sleep affects health.”
“My favorite aspect of the job is seeing people after their health improves and they’re feeling better. I understand how I feel when I don’t feel well and how that affects every aspect of your life. My goal is to help others feel better and that is the greatest reward I get out of practicing medicine.”
