The Patient Satisfaction Rating is an average of all responses to the care provider related questions shown below from our nationally-recognized Press Ganey Patient Satisfaction Survey. Patients that are treated in outpatient or hospital environments may receive different surveys, and the volume of responses will vary by question.
Responses are measured on a scale of 1 to 5 with 5 being the best score.
Comments are submitted by patients and reflect their views and opinions. The comments are not endorsed by and do not necessarily reflect the views of Penn Medicine.
During fellowship training, Dr. Sims completed a Masters Degree in Clinical Epidemiology at the University of Pennsylvania, studying the functional consequences of secondary pulmonary hypertension in patients with severe COPD. After completing his fellowship training, he went on to be the principal investigator of a K23 award from the NIH/NHLBI investigating surfactant protein D as a modulator of lung inflammation and COPD pathogenesis. In addition, he has been actively involved in multiple clinical and translational studies of biomarkers and novel therapies for COPD as well as bronchoscopic treatments for severe emphysema. In 2013, Dr. Sims redirected his career to focus on the clinical care of advanced COPD, and now serves as the Clinical Director of the Penn COPD Program.
