About

Bio

I finished medical School at Buenos Aires National University (1973),and trained in Cardiology in Argentina and completed Fellowships at University of California, San Francisco (Echocardiography, 1977) and Loma Linda University (Invasive Cardiology, 1978-79). I moved to New Orleans, LA in 1979 to teach and practice at Louisiana State University and I have been in Private Practice since 1982. I am Board Certified in Internal Medicine, Cardiovascular Diseases and Interventional Cardiology. I love to do medical seminars for the community as I believe that education in matters of medicine leads to healthier lifestyles that in turn, improve people's health and quality of life. I do photography as a serious hobby and I have more than 30 of my pictures published in medical journals (ie: NEJM )

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.
