Dr. Alfin G. Vicencio is the Chief of the Division of Pediatric Pulmonology in the Jack and Lucy Clark Department of Pediatrics at the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai and the Kravis Children's Hospital at Mount Sinai. After completing his undergraduate studies at the University of Notre Dame and obtaining his medical degree from the University of Toledo, he relocated to the East Coast, where he completed a pediatric residency at Babies and Children's Hospital (Columbia University) and a pediatric pulmonology fellowship at Yale University. A primary clinical interest of his over the past several years has been severe and refractory asthma. Together with several regional collaborators, Dr. Vicencio is helping to identify patients who may have sub-clinical fungal infection in the lower airway as a cause of persistent symptoms, as well as formulate new diagnostic and treatment plans for such patients. In addition to his work in asthma, he has extensive experience in diagnostic and interventional flexible bronchoscopy in children, including visual examination of the airways, bronchoalveolar lavage, endo- and transbronchial biopsy, foreign body retrieval, balloon dilation, and other therapeutic procedures. Such procedures are performed in a state-of-the-art bronchoscopy suite, where he works closely with members of the adult interventional bronchoscopy service, including Dr. Timothy Harkin. Dr. Vicencio has published on a variety of topics including asthma, flexible bronchoscopy, wheezing, tracheobronchomalacia, bronchiolitis and bronchopulmonary dysplasia, and has been recognized as a "Top Doctor" both regionally and nationally.
