Bio

My practices focuses on treatment of hyperlipidemia (cholesterol and triglycerides), hypertension, obesity and metabolic syndrome. I am accredited as a hypertension specialist by the American Society of Hypertension and am a Fellow of both the American Heart Association and Obesity Society. I do research on novel treatments for atherosclerosis, hypertension, diabetes and obesity.
