WHERE I PROVIDE CARE
Profile
ABOUT ME

I am an interventional cardiologist who helps patients in the cardiac catheterization lab by performing procedures like inserting stents and pacemakers. I also provide care in general cardiology and follow patients with coronary disease, congestive heart failure, and atrial fibrillation.  I have spent more than 20 years at the Kernodle Clinic and helped establish and design its cath lab. I view my patients as family members and try to be conservative about when to intervene. I know there are always risks and drawbacks to any intervention, so I use good judgment to determine when a procedure is warranted. Outside of work I enjoy spending time with my two children, playing golf and going on winter skiing trips with my family.
