Research Interest
Dr. Unligil has a special interest in research regarding the health effects of air pollution, and works to remain abreast of it so that he can be a resource in this field for local environmental groups as well as for colleagues.
Clinical Interest
Practicing primary care in both preventive and urgent care settings, my clinical interests include the range of common infectious and orthopedic problems experienced by adults. I am also particularly interested in common gynecological problems, health effects of environmental exposures, medical issues during pregnancy and lactation, encouraging lifestyle improvements at every encounter and in travel medicine.
Educational Interest
My educational interest is in sharing with learners my appreciation for the very special nature of the patient physician relationship, where technology and testing can complement but never replace a careful history and physical exam.
