Caring compassionate comprehensive cardiovascular care through prevention, appropriate use of Imaging, and maintaining an evidence based practice. Secondary Specialty: Internal Medicine
I have been involved in healthcare in different capacities since 1981 and have been a physician now for 25 years. I have witnessed many changes in practice and with healthcare in general. I think it is remarkable how things have advanced during this time. Things which were unimaginable 25 years ago are now routine and commonplace like valve replacement without open heart surgery. What hasn't changed is that special relationship that can develop over time between a physician and a patient. I strive each and everyday to be the best that I can be in my capacity as a physician. There are many competing entities which want to be in the room and have a say about what I do and how I do it as far as patient care. I above all else try to be the advocate for my patients with all of these competing influences. I also try to be an educator and an example in my own health and wellness for my patients.
