WHERE I PROVIDE CARE
Profile
ABOUT ME

One of the special things about electrophysiology here is that we have we have a really large department. We have 13 electrophysiologists, which is more than some cities have. A unique aspect of Duke is that there is a lot of collegiality among our providers. We certainly approach patients as a team. That’s a huge benefit for patients coming to Duke. With such a large and unique department, we’re certainly able to deal with many complex patients. Some of my favorite patients are those I have followed for years. It’s an ongoing relationship that I have and seeing them come back and telling me about all the wonderful things they are doing is really satisfying.

Clinical Focus and Research
MY RESEARCH INTERESTS

My research is primarily focused on patients with arrhythmias and congestive heart failure. I am investigating a new “leadless” pacemaker, as well as new pacemaker technology for heart failure patients. For patients with atrial fibrillation, I am part of the research team looking at whether catheter ablation or medication is the best first step in treatment. In addition, I am looking at ways to improve our ability to treat complex heart rhythm problems, such as ventricular tachycardia.
