WHERE I PROVIDE CARE
Profile
ABOUT ME

My focus is on heart rhythm problems. As a doctor, I work with patients to come up with a treatment plan that helps manage their condition. This may involve a cardiac ablation procedure or implantation of a pacemaker or defibrillator. As a researcher, I spend a good portion of my time looking at health disparities with the goal of improving access to high-quality healthcare for people of all races, genders and ages. I’ve been at Duke since 1999, when I started my residency. I decided to become a doctor because I had an interest in biology while I was in college. I chose cardiology because it is highly technical and gives me the chance to really get to know my patients over the course of treatment. Focusing on the heart also allows me to make a greater impact on healthcare, since heart disease is so common in the United States. Outside of work, I enjoy spending time with my family, including my two young children.

Clinical Focus and Research
MY RESEARCH INTERESTS

My goal is to eliminate disparities in cardiovascular care while improving quality of care and outcomes for disparate populations. My research expertise entails interventions that address racial and ethnic disparities in cardiovascular care, outcomes research, and the design and conduct of clinical trials. I hope to further contribute novel methods of addressing disparities in cardiovascular care delivery and outcomes and building a minority clinical trials consortium to assist in the recruitment of racial/ethnic minorities to clinical trials and registries.
