Anitra Graves, M.D., MMM, FCCP, FAASM


"I find it personally and professionally rewarding to be able to help people overcome serious healthcare problems. Over the years, I’ve helped thousands of people breathe easier, sleep better and get healthier.

Pulmonary, sleep and critical care medicine are rapidly evolving fields where new innovations are constantly being introduced. To keep current, I take well above the required levels of continuing education in these medical specialty fields.

But as important as both training and experience are in the specialist you choose, the manner in which they deliver your care is of equal importance. I personalize my care by creating treatment plans that are unique for each individual. I use a scientific, evidence-based approach so my patients have options. And I take the time to educate you not only about your disorder but also what it means in the context of your day-to-day life."
