Learn about this doctor

Care Philosophy

In approaching patients who need heart surgery, I always try to remember that they and their families are more often than not facing a very daunting proposal. Needing heart surgery can seem unimaginable and at times even terrifying. I always try to reassure them that their heart health can be restored ,and that they can resume a very productive life once fully recovered. Careful explanation, joint decision making, and treating them as I would my own family seems to be helpful with this process.Read more
