About

Bio

Preventive cardiology is a passion. I also relish the challenge of diagnosing and treating heart disease. Although heart diseases is my focus, I also maintain certification in Internal Medicine which helps me see things in a broader sense and makes me a better diagnostician. I have extensive training and experience in cardiovascular disease and congestive heart failure. In addition, skill sets including cardiac catheterization, permanent pacemaker implantation and device management and expertise in an array of non invasive imaging including transesophageal and transthoracic echocardiography, nuclear cardiology and cardiac CT helps me in my efforts. I make ongoing efforts to keep up with the constantly evolving field of cardiology so that I can bring up to date evidence based management to my patients. To hear my patients say that they feel better at least in part to my efforts brings great satisfaction. I am always thankful for their trust and the opportunity they give me to be part of their well being.

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.
