About

Bio

I am a board certified Interventional and Clinical Cardiologist. I was trained at Southwestern Medical School and I have been in practice of cardiology since 1979.

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.

High LDL: More information is needed to determine your individual risk for cardiac event such as smoking history, history of diabetes, and hypertension.. Such a profile would help determine the need to treat the high LDL cholesterol with medications..

Atherosclerosis: Calcium scoring from CT scan of coronaries is adding up radio graphic sum of calcium found. A score of greater than 400 is high so 2100 is extremely high suggesting great amount of atherosclerosis in the coronary arteries. Some studies suggest greater risk of heart related problems with a higher score. I would recommend some close follow up with a cardiologist.

Mitral valve: for mitral regurgitation , repair by a surgeon with lots of experience, is preferred as you keep your natural valve and would most likely not require a lifetime of anti-coagulants.
