"I am grateful for the opportunity to help my patients live a fulfilling life. My passion for cardiology began during residency when I personally saw significant improvements in the conditions of critically-ill patients. I quickly realized cardiology held a special place in my heart given that minimally invasive procedures can make a major impact on quality of life. Patients are often anxious and vulnerable when seeing a physician. Therefore, my priority is to comfort and support my patients as well as promote their recovery every step of the way."
Matters of the Heart
"The field of cardiology is growing rapidly and continuously emerging with new technologies. Staying informed about new advances is imperative for the care of our patients. Throughout my cardiology training I was exposed to the latest breakthrough therapies for cardiac conditions. Cardiology has progressed to enable us to make substantial improvements in many lives. I am excited to offer my patients some of the newer therapeutic options especially in structural heart disease."
