About Me

Care Philosophy

I have been practicing cardiology for 26 years with my philosophy being to educate, support and encourage patients and their families to be involved in their care. I take time to answer patient's questions about their conditions and treatment options. Many patients I see require invasive procedures and it is important they understand the risks and benefits of these procedures as well as all other noninvasive options to treat their condition such as lifestyle changes and medical interventions. I am available for questions even after patients leave the office. I believe in compassionate and respectful care for patients as if they were my own family.Less...
