About Me

I focus on the management of all aspects of cardiovascular disease, including arrhythmias, coronary artery disease, heart failure, peripheral vascular disease, and prevention of heart disease. I also have extensive expertise in cardiac imaging including echocardiography, nuclear stress testing, and vascular imaging. Cardiology has been my passion throughout my medical training, and I strive to bring that level of enthusiasm and dedication to the care of my patients. I believe that patients are at the very center of what we do as physicians, and I focus on listening intently and engaging in a partnership with my patients. I enjoy educating patients on their diseases and making decisions as a team with an emphasis on patient values in combination with clinical evidence and utilizing all of the advanced treatments that are available in the Triangle. Nothing gives me greater joy than helping a patient feel better, whether it is from reassurance or after beginning a treatment plan tailored to their specific form of heart disease.
