Dr. Matthew Bruehl is board-certified in pediatric pulmonology and general pediatrics with clinical interests in asthma, childhood suppurative lung disease, children dependent on technology due to lung/airway disease, clinical informatics and improved utilization of the electronic medical record. He earned his medical degree from the University of Oklahoma College of Medicine and completed a residency in pediatrics and fellowship in pediatrics pulmonology from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill School of Medicine.


Dr. Bruehl believes that every patient has a story and that it is his job to help interpret their experiences and weave together a narrative that informs their care. The following quote from Roger Ebert has always resonated with him:

“I believe that if, at the end of it all, according to our abilities, we have done something to make others a little happier, and something to make ourselves a little happier, that is about the best we can do. To make others less happy is a crime. To make ourselves unhappy is where all crime starts. We must try to contribute joy to the world. That is true no matter what our problems, our health, our circumstances. We must try.”

In his free time, Dr. Bruehl enjoys hiking, cooking with science, and video games.
