Cardiology | Male | 66 years old

Learn about this doctor

Care Philosophy

Although I am a general cardiologist, my research and extra training has been in preventive cardiology and clinical lipidology (diagnosis and management of high triglycerides and cholesterol). I believe in identifying high risk individuals as early as possible, before permanent damage has occurred. I am particularly interested in finding early signs of plaque in the arteries, as well as excess inflammation, and pre-diabetes. I stress the importance of lifestyle, including nutrition and exercise.Read more
