TPMG Lung and Sleep Specialists in Newport News is pleased to announce the expansion of their practice with the addition of a fifth provider, Agnieszka E. Petersen, MD, and the opening of their new location.

Petersen, MD, and Sabrina Brown, MSN, FNP-C will all be practicing at their new Newport News location, 11848 Rock Landing Drive, Suite 402.

She earned her medical degree from the Medical University of Gdansk in Gdansk, Poland and completed her internal medicine residency and fellowship in Pulmonary Medicine at Yale University Bridgeport Hospital in Connecticut.
With dual training in pulmonary and critical care medicine, Dr. Petersen has extensive experience managing intensive care units, as well as expertise in respiratory failure and life-saving interventions.
Dr. Petersen specializes in the treatment and management of disorders of the respiratory system, including the lungs, upper airways, thoracic cavity, and chest wall. She diagnoses and treats patients who suffer from lung diseases including asthma, chronic obstructive lung disease (COPD), emphysema, lung cancer, and interstitial and occupational lung diseases.
As a pulmonologist, she seeks to educate her patients on their specific conditions by developing comprehensive treatment plans and providing compassionate care using the latest medical evidence and research available in pulmonary medicine. She looks forward to providing high quality, personalized care to the Newport News community.
“We’re excited to have such a well-rounded physician join the group. Dr. Petersen’s extensive knowledge in a wide range of conditions makes her a great addition to the pulmonology team,” said TPMG Chief Medical Officer, Steven Leblang, MD.
