About Me

As a cardiologist and heart failure specialist, I strive to provide patient-centered care to help my patients live longer and healthier lives. I focus on building strong, long-lasting relationships through good communication and education so we can make the right treatment decision at every stage of the heart failure disease spectrum. I work with an outstanding team of colleagues including cardiothoracic surgeons, advanced practice providers, nursing staff, and clinical care coordinators to provide you with access to the most advanced therapies available, including heart transplant and left ventricular assist device (LVAD) surgery. As a Carolina native, I am committed to serving the people of North Carolina and enhancing regional heart failure care. I am happy to provide residents of Durham and Wake Counties access to our team's world class heart failure care, with offices in Durham and at WakeMed Raleigh through Heart Care Plus+. We look forward to having you join our team for your heart failure care.
