About Me

Care Philosophy

My background is electrical engineering and, in a way, that's still what I do. Though now my focus is the electrical engineering of the heart. I'm motivated by a desire to help my patients feel better and retain as normal a lifestyle as possible despite the presence of significant heart disease.
