As a Cardiovascular and Thoracic Surgeon I strive to provide the best care possible to each and every patient I see. My staff and I are available to the patient and their families every step of the way. We know how scary this territory can be to navigate. I hold multiple board certifications and believe in staying current on the latest technologies. This allows me to offer the most innovative care possible.
