WHERE I PROVIDE CARE
Profile
ABOUT ME

I am a cardiologist with a clinical interest in heart failure, including advanced therapies such as cardiac transplantation and mechanical assist devices or “heart pumps." I became a heart failure cardiologist in order to help patients manage their chronic disease over many months and years. I consider myself strongly committed to compassionate patient care with a focus on quality of life and patient preference. I am an effective communicator with an understanding and sensitivity to diversity and ethical practice. My practice functions as a clinical care team composed of physicians, nurses, social workers, therapists, and support staff in order to promptly provide comprehensive patient care. I am motivated to provide state-of-the-art cardiovascular care for my patients. My research interests are focused on treating co-morbid diseases in heart failure patients and improving outcomes across the cardiovascular spectrum through clinical trials and outcomes research.
