I pro­vide indi­vid­u­al­ized, evi­dence based and com­pas­sion­ate care to my patients. I believe it’s best to work in part­ner­ship with my patients and their fam­i­ly to devel­op an opti­mal and informed treat­ment plan to main­tain and improve upon their car­diac health.

Feb­ru­ary is Amer­i­can Heart Month. In hon­or of this month, Duly Health and Care is offer­ing Coro­nary Cal­ci­um Score CT scans for $75. Heart scans are used to look for cal­ci­um deposits in the coro­nary arter­ies that can nar­row your arter­ies and increase your heart attack risk.
