Julian Solway, MD, is an expert in pulmonary medicine with a particular interest in the management of severe and persistent asthma. Under his leadership, researchers, scientists and clinicians work to understand the causes of disease and to bring new therapies to the public.

Dr. Solway's research focuses on the structure and function of smooth muscle, the tissue that encircles the bronchial tubes. When irritated, smooth muscle contracts, narrowing these air passages and making it hard to breathe. By studying this process, Dr. Solway hopes to find more effective treatments for asthma. His work has been extensively funded by the National Institutes of Health (NIH).

A dedicated educator and mentor, Dr. Solway trains medical, graduate, and postdoctoral students in the study respiratory biology. He is also a prolific scholar, having authored more than 150 peer-reviewed articles, as well as numerous chapters in leading textbooks on lung biology, asthma, and pulmonary pharmacology.

Why does this provider not have a star rating?

Our goal is to provide our patients and visitors with correct and useful information. We only post provider satisfaction information from clinic surveys when they are returned from patients.

This provider has not had surveys returned that meet the necessary sample size

About Our Star Ratings and Comments:

Randomly selected patients are sent patient satisfaction surveys after their visits. We get thousands of survey responses each year. The responses are used to improve patient experience and recognize staff members for the care they provide. Patient survey responses are also used to make star ratings for each provider.

For the star ratings and comments, all feedback on the provider web page is posted as it was given from patients. Comments that do not apply, risk patient privacy, or are not appropriate are not posted. Star ratings and comments come from a number of survey questions. A star rating is not given if a provider only has a small number of survey responses.
