Dr. Alyssa A. Perez is a pulmonologist who cares for patients living with cystic fibrosis (CF), an inherited condition that damages the lungs and other organs. She provides pre- and postsurgical care for patients undergoing lung transplantation.

Perez's research, which is supported by the Cystic Fibrosis Therapeutics Development Network, focuses on conducting clinical trials (studies with human volunteers) of new CF treatments.

Perez earned her medical degree from Sidney Kimmel Medical College at Thomas Jefferson University and completed a residency in internal medicine at Brigham and Women's Hospital. She also earned a master of education degree from the Harvard Graduate School of Education. At UCSF, she completed a fellowship in pulmonary and critical care medicine, including a year of advanced training in lung transplantation, cystic fibrosis and advanced lung disease.

In addition to caring for patients, Perez enjoys training the next generation of doctors. She is a coach for the UCSF pulmonary and critical care medicine fellowship and an associate program director for the internal medicine residency program.

    How can you not adore the doctor who tells you how fantastic you look? She did worry about my poor bones and were relieved when I told her my endocrinologist was gathering data on a rebuilding bone drug appropriate for a transplant patient.

    Dr. Perez is one of the best physicians I've ever met. She is clearly intelligent and competent in her field but she is also so amazingly kind and empathetic. She must be incredibly busy with constant demands on her time but when she's with you she makes you feel that you're her only priority. She's a wonderful physician who can really connect well with her patients!
