Practices In: Joliet, New Lenox
Patients Seen: Adults

I have been prac­tic­ing car­di­ol­o­gy for 26 years with my phi­los­o­phy being to edu­cate, sup­port and encour­age patients and their fam­i­lies to be involved in their care. I take time to answer patien­t’s ques­tions about their con­di­tions and treat­ment options. Many patients I see require inva­sive pro­ce­dures and it is impor­tant they under­stand the risks and ben­e­fits of these pro­ce­dures as well as all oth­er non­in­va­sive options to treat their con­di­tion such as lifestyle changes and med­ical inter­ven­tions. I am avail­able for ques­tions even after patients leave the office. I believe in com­pas­sion­ate and respect­ful care for patients as if they were my own family.
