Care Philosophy

I find it very gratifying as a physician to treat people with life-threatening situations and then watch them walk out of the hospital in another day or two. That's one of the exciting things about cardiology in these days. We have state of the art equipment at Rush and at Rush Oak Park Hospital to take care of people in these situations. But I'd really rather meet people in the office long before they have a cardiac event. I try to prevent heart attacks from happening. So I have a passion for promoting wellness, as opposed to just treating disease. A patient is not necessarily a statistic that needs to be treated according to the guidelines. And we have to understand the guidelines and practice evidence-based medicine, but we also have to know when the individual patient has a need that's not met by those guidelines and when to differ in order to give the person what they really need. And that's part of the art of medicine, and that's what makes medicine exciting to practice and very satisfying when you're meeting the need of the individual patient.

Where our data comes from - The data you see on providers' Healthgrades profiles comes from both the provider and public sources. The Top Care Areas section uses public data from billing claims that providers submit to insurance companies. That data is filed nationwide on behalf of the provider to either the government or a private health insurance company.

How we evaluate our data - Patient volume is analyzed by provider and compared nationally with all providers who perform the same procedure, or treat the same condition. We organize the volume data in percentile ranking from 'may perform' for the lowest claims volume to 'Very High' for the highest claims volume data. For a given condition or procedure, performance categories are defined based on 80%, 90%, and 95% confidence intervals from the average patient volume for all providers in our database. Providers identified as ‘may perform’ do not have sufficient volume for Healthgrades to create a statistical evaluation.
