About Me

I am a clinical cardiac electrophysiologist, a cardiologist who focuses on invasive and non-invasive treatments for the electrical problems of the heart, such as arrhythmias. Patient and family-centered decision-making is a core principle of my approach to patient care. I believe it improves the overall quality of care and patient and family satisfaction. When necessary, I can perform a wide variety of procedures for my patients, including ablation of simple and complex arrhythmias, such as atrial fibrillation, supraventricular tachycardia, Wolff-Parkinson-White syndrome, and ventricular tachycardia, and implantation of pacemakers, defibrillators, and left atrial appendage occlusion devices. I have expertise in implanting newer and complex devices, including cardiac resynchronization therapy devices, conduction system pacemakers, leadless pacemakers, and subcutaneous defibrillators.

Clinical Focus and Research

My Research Interests

My research areas of interest include improving the safety and efficacy of complex ablation and optimal use of pacemakers in patients with heart failure, including cardiac resynchronization therapy and His bundle pacing. I am also interested in non-pharmacologic management of atrial fibrillation, including catheter ablation and left atrial appendage occlusion, and understanding optimal use of novel and emerging technologies.
