Felipe Lopez, MD, a pulmonologist, specializes in caring for critically ill patients in the hospital, managing cases that range from complex, multiorgan failure to severe infections that can lead to sepsis, a life-threatening condition caused when the body’s response to infection injures its own tissues and organs.

“I feel that I help someone to get through some of the toughest times of their lives,” says Dr. Lopez. “The benefit of working at Yale Medicine,” he adds, is “the healthcare team approach.” He puts patients at ease by telling them, “You are in the hands of highly trained healthcare professionals who are here to care for you with respect and to advocate for you and support you during this difficult time.”
