Dr. Bennett's bio

This content was provided by Dr. Bennett "My desire to become a physician and cardiologist stems primary from my environment. I grew up in a single parent home, in an impoverished inner city housing project in Birmingham, Alabama. In this world, healthcare was viewed as an unaffordable luxury, rather than a basic necessity of life. There were no annual checkups, no preventive medicine and no early diagnoses. Instead, healthcare was a community filled with fears and misconceptions about medicine…the harsh reality of poverty. As a result, cardiovascular disease went unchecked and served as a leading cause of death. All of my life, I watched the health of this community, and that of my own family, suffer at the hands of this devastating disease. This greatly confused me as a youth and now frustrates me as an adult. Just as in my community, cardiovascular disease destroys the health of many people throughout the United States. My decision to embark on a career in cardiology stems from a desire to fight this crippling disease, and make a difference in the lives of those who are affected. In terms of training, I earned an MD/PhD degree from The University of Alabama at Birmingham. I then completed an Internal Medicine Residency at Louisiana State University Health Sciences Center in New Orleans, where I also served as Chief Medical Resident. After residency, I completed fellowships in Cardiology and Vascular Medicine at Stanford University, followed by an advanced fellowship in Interventional Cardiology at Yale University consisting of coronary and peripheral vascular intervention. My clinical interests include management of patients with advanced cardiovascular disease; complex coronary and peripheral vascular interventions; critical limb ischemia; and carotid stenting in high surgical risk patients.

Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Bennett "My care philosophy is centered on the principal of, “in order to take care of the patient, you must first care for the patient” (Sir William Osler).  By carefully listening to the patient and addressing each of the patient’s concerns, I strive to ensure delivery of the highest quality care possible.   In turn, my goal is to educate patients and their families on the disease process, and make them an active participant in their care.  "
