About Dr. Azher

I am a respirologist with an interest in sleep medicine and have worked in St. John’s NL from the last 17 years. I have the privilege of running the only sleep lab in the province since my arrival from Ireland in 2003. I completed my post-graduate training in Respirology and sleep medicine from Ireland.

Over the last 6 years, I have worked as a divisional chief for the Respirology at eastern health. I am actively involved in respiratory research in COPD and other respiratory disorders. I have been involved in teaching, research, and other scholarly activities at memorial university.

I regularly teach topics in Respirology and sleep medicine to undergraduate and postgraduate medical students. I have collaborated with other stakeholders for the management of sleep apnea in our province.
