Profile
ABOUT ME

I specialize in the care of patients with general and advanced heart failure. I am seeing patients at WakeMed Heart Center through Heart Care Plus+, the collaboration of heart care services from WakeMed and Duke Health. I look at each patient individually yet apply the most advanced therapies for everyone. I have a particular interest in understanding the causes of heart failure, especially related to pregnancy and chemotherapy. I am also involved in a number of research projects evaluating new possible therapies for patients with heart failure. Outside of work, I enjoy cycling and spending time cycling with my wife and three boys.
