Learn about this Doctor

Care Philosophy

Parents or caregivers who are referred to a Pediatric Cardiologist are understandably anxious. Whether dealing with a benign heart murmur or complex congenital heart disease, I recognize the stress felt by families and patients. We thus strive to create a calm therapuetic environment, with ample appointment time, to fully evaluate and treat every child. This includes taking the time to understand the concerns of the parents and referring doctors, and providing thorough education to patients and families so they leave their appointment fully informed and, in most cases, relieved. My partners and I bring the highest academic credentials and the latest state-of-the-art technology to provide comprehensive cardiovascular care to our patients and their families. And our staff provide the comfort and professionalism to make each encounter the best it can be.Read more
