Suresh M. Khilnani, MD, Pulmonologist
Medicine has been a calling for me. There is no greater victory, no greater achievement, than to help heal an individual from illness. Patient centered care is my priority, the driving force of how I approach medicine.
As a board certified pulmonologist, my focus is on all lung diseases. Prior to coming to Glenwood Springs in 2015, I spent twenty-five years in Las Vegas, NV, as a physician with Pulmonary Associates and ten years teaching the future medical personnel at Touro University Nevada College of Osteopathic Medicine (TUNCOM), which trains students to become Doctors of Osteopathy and Master of Science Physicians Assistants. I was born and raised in Bombay, India, later training at Albert Einstein College of Medicine in New York while raising my family. While most of my time is devoted to patients, I look forward to getting into the outdoors, experiencing what the valley has to offer.
Amy Kousagan, Certified Nurse Practitioner
My healthcare career began at the Cleveland Clinic in Cleveland, Ohio, where I worked as a nursing assistant in Colorectal Surgery while attending nursing school at the University of Akron. After graduation I continued to work at the Cleveland Clinic, as an RN in the Heart Failure Intensive Care Unit. I became a certified Nurse Practitioner in 2012, after attending the University of Cincinnati, and then worked at The Cleveland Clinic for Advanced Lung Disease/Lung Transplant inpatient service, caring for pre- and post-operative lung transplants recipients. I was also involved with research and case studies; one of my case reports was selected for a presentation at the American Thoracic Society conference in 2014 and another was published in the Society of Critical Care Medicine Journal that same year.
I am passionate about providing patient-centered care through effective communication and collaboration, building trusting relationships with patients. I enjoy taking time to listen and understand each patient’s individual needs, and my main goal is to develop a positive healing experience to patients.
