About

Bio

Specialist in cardiovascular diseases with an office-based practice. I have particular interest in electrophysiology, heart failure, hypertension, coronary artery disease, and preventive cardiology. I am interested in the relationship between socio-economic and psychological factors in disease.

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.
