Care Philosophy

In my practice, I take advantage of noninvasive technology such as echocardiography and vascular imaging to detect and monitor heart disease. I also utilize invasive and interventional procedures to diagnose and treat cardiac problems. Today's effective treatments and procedures save lives and can increase quality of life for those with heart problems. I also perform invasive procedures when indicated.

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.

Wow. Thank goodness the test I took today showed I did not need a cardiologist, but if I did at least I would know who NOT to choose. His arrogance and lack of bedside manner even had his nurse rolling her eyes. When he told ME to tell my internist that she was wasting time and money with the tests she was ordering, even the nurse said to him 'Why don't you do it?' He stated it wasn't worth the call. Time to retire and do something you enjoy, Doc, cause it sure isn't this anymore...
