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.

"Excellent care, concern and willingness to do whatever needed to be done to clarify if there was a cardiac issue or not in order to clear me prior to my scheduled surgery date - 5 days later. He even contacted radiology and arranged the CT Angiogram himself and also made sure the scan was read immediately so he was able to give the results in time."
