WHERE I PROVIDE CARE
Profile
ABOUT ME

I’m a cardiologist and the clinical director of the Duke Heart Center at Southpoint. I’ve been at Duke off and on for more than 20 years. While I was an undergraduate at Duke, my dad suffered a heart attack; my grandfather died from a heart attack several years before that. I decided if I’m going to get this illness, I better learn how to prevent it. My son was also born with congenital heart disease and we were faced with where do we take our child? I learned to always choose a hospital with an excellent reputation and where people care about you and your family. Duke is one of those places.
