About Me

It is with mixed emotions that we announce Dr. Skantha Manjunath will be departing from Houston Methodist Lung Associates. This will be effective as of September 4, 2022. It has not been easy for us to let go of such a brilliant, hard-working, and loving doctor, but we wish her all the best for her future endeavors. As we say goodbye to Dr. Manjunath, we would like to introduce you to Dr. Houssam Oueini who specializes in Pulmonology, Megan Duffey NP and Domonique Fontenot NP. They will be available to help with your transition of care with Houston Methodist Lung Associates. To schedule an appointment or for additional assistance, please call 281-428-4510. Our goal at the Houston Methodist Lung Associates is to provide the highest quality care to our patients. Together we will navigate this transition to ensure you have everything you need. Please call our office if we can be of further assistance. If you prefer to obtain a copy of your records or transition your care outside of Houston Methodist, you may contact our medical records department at 713.394.6428. Please keep in mind it may take up to fifteen (15) business days for records to be released. Thank you for the opportunity to serve you, and I wish you continued health and wellness.
