About

Bio

I am a cardiologist specializing in Cardiac Electrophysiology, which is the diagnosis and treatment of cardiac arrhythmias. Special interests include atrial fibrillation treatment, ablations, and inherited arrhythmia syndromes. I trained at Harvard Medical School, Massachusetts General Hospital, and BIDMC in Boston and am currently the Director of Electrophysiology at Steward Healthcare, practicing at St. Elizabeth's Medical Center with additional clinics at Good Samaritan Medical Center and Norwood Hospital.

Specialties
Doctors may have more than one area of specialty interest. Board certification in a specialty area means the doctor has completed formal training and has practice experience in that specialty, and has passed the certification examination from the corresponding accredited medical specialty board.
