Eric Teller, MD - NYC pulmonologist

Eric Teller earned his BA, Summa cum Laude, from Yeshiva University and his medical degree from Robert Wood Johnson Medical School - University of Medicine of New Jersey in 2002. He was trained in Internal Medicine at Robert Wood Johnson University Hospital in New Brunswick, New Jersey between 2002 and 2005. After a year as Chief Resident in Internal Medicine, he completed a fellowship in pulmonary, critical care and sleep medicine at New York Presbyterian Hospital - Columbia University Medical Center.

Dr. Teller joined Kamelhar Pulmonary in 2009. He has a faculty appointment at NYU School of Medicine where he teaches medical students, residents and fellows at NYU Langone Medical Center. He performs bronchoscopies at the hospital to diagnose patients with lung cancer, infections and other lung diseases.

Dr. Teller was awarded a grant during fellowship from the ResMed Foundation for the treatment of sleep disordered breathing in patients with congestive heart failure. He specializes in the diagnosis and management of the breathing and sleep problems in patients with heart disease. He has privileges at New York Eye and Ear Infirmary where he interprets sleep studies.

His expertise includes sleep apnea, insomnia, other sleep disorders, cough, asthma, chronic obstructive lung disease, sinus disease, lung cancer and interstitial lung disease.

Dr. Teller prides himself on using an evidence based approach in the treatment of patients. He customizes the plan for each patient and utilizes relationships with other specialists, therapists and DME companies throughout NYC and beyond to find the right approach in the management of each patient’s underlying disease.

Research Experience

ResMed Foundation Grant January 2009 – Present
Columbia University Medical Center
ROBERT C. BASNER, MD. Awarded research funding for a study of cardiovascular outcomes in acutely decompensated heart failure patients treated for Cheyne-Stokes breathing, an abnormal type of respiration characterized by alternating patterns of shallow and deep breathing, with a corrective technique known as Adaptive Servo-Ventilation (ASV).

Researcher/Lab Technician. June 1997 – August 1998
Albert Einstein College of Medicine BARBARA K.BIRSHTEIN, PHD. Identified transcription regulators, using the yeast-two-hybrid system, that modulate BSAP (B-cell specific activator protein), a transcription factor that represses the hs 1,2 enhancer (one of the four enhancers located at the three prime end of the IgH locus) in B-cells and pre B-cells.

Summer Research Scholar. June 1996 – August 1996
Albert Einstein College of Medicine BARBARA K.BIRSHTEIN, PHD. Explored the mechanisms that govern normal antibody gene rearrangements of B-cells. Investigated the purpose of four gene enhancers and the transcription factors that control enhancer activity in the production of antibodies. Generated a “knockout mouse”, using a two-step PCR, in order to elucidate the function of hs4 (one of the four enhancers located at the three prime end of the IgH locus) in potentially regulating transcriptional and rearrangement processes that affect the immunoglobulin heavy chain gene locus during B-cell development.
