Dr. Witkin’s clinical and research interests focus on patients with pulmonary hypertension. She has a particular interest in both acute and chronic thromboembolic disease. She is a member of the MGH Pulmonary Embolism Response Team (PERT) and serves as the co-chair of the communications committee for the National PERT Consortium. She is particularly interested in the recovery from acute PE and sees patients in a follow up PE clinic to help with early identification of patients with incomplete recovery.
