About

Bio

I trained in internal medicine while doing clinical research at UT Southwestern followed by Chief Cardiology fellow and MBA at Uc Irvine and then Interventional Cardiology fellowship at Harvard/Beth Israel Deaconess hospital.

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.

Not necessarily: There is considerable variability from study to study and the EF depends on many other parameters, thus this shouldn't be obsessed over, what is more important is your clinical status and activity level.

Yes: You can drink water and even pills before most lab tests.

Possibly: Walking up a flight of stairs requires different energy and physical requirements than walking on flat surface, and I'm not clear how fast you're walking on the flat surface. If you have other cardiac risk factors (high bp, high cholesterol, overweight, family history), you should see a Cardiologist and consider a stress test. In the interim, you should focus on walking the stairs more often.
