Learn about this doctor

Care Philosophy

I am a pediatric cardiologist who specializes in imaging childrens hearts. Doctors usually refer patients to me due to a specific concern about a childs heart health. These concerns could include heart murmurs passing out or chest pain. When I meet with a family I try and put them at ease by explaining whats going on with their childs heart in simple terms. I decided to pursue medicine after I had the chance to travel to Honduras as a translator for a medical group. I enjoyed working with the patients and doctors on that trip so much that I decided my future was in medicine. My time outside of work is dedicated to my two school aged boys which means I spend a lot of time either watching them play sports playing sports with them or taking them to see sporting events.Read more
