About Me

I am a general cardiologist and researcher who specializes in the treatment of coronary artery disease. I’ve been at Duke for almost 25 years. I decided to become a doctor after an experience in college volunteering at a pediatric intensive care unit. I look at each patient as a unique individual. However, I offer each patient the same high level of access and care and thoughtful approach to their condition. One of the unique aspects of my practice is that I care for a number of couples in which both partners have cardiovascular disease. I usually see these couples during the same visit, and I enjoy these interactions quite a bit. Outside of work, I am an avid cyclist and enjoy spending time outdoors with my wife and three children.

Clinical Focus and Research
My Research Interests

I specialize in clinical research related to a variety of cardiovascular conditions, including heart attacks, lipid disorders, blood thinning medications and vascular disease. I have a research appointment at the Duke Clinical Research Institute, the world’s leading academic research organization. I have had extensive experience in conducting and leading clinical trials, observational registries and quality improvement implementation studies. I believe these experiences help me to implement the best evidence and treatments in my clinical practice.
