About Me

Care Philosophy

I grew up with a father who practiced medicine. From a young age I realized the rewards of healing the sick and knew that I wanted to follow in my father's footsteps as a physician, particularly as a heart surgeon. The greatest gift I recieve in my work is to be able to give a patient a better quality of life using the most advanced surgical techniques.
