What made you want to become a health care provider or what is your earliest memory of wanting to be one?
My interest in science combined with my inquisitive and altruistic nature made medicine an obvious choice for me. I was a physician in my seventh grade career fair, and I've focused my education and training on achieving the goal of becoming an actual physician since then.
What do you love most about your specialty? / Why did you choose your specialty?
I am a clinical cardiac electrophysiologist. I was drawn to the specialty of cardiology early in my medical training, because cardiologists have the opportunity to help patients during critical illnesses. The subspecialty electrophysiology fascinates me, because it combines a highly technical and intellectual field with cutting-edge technology with the potential to cure arrhythmias through procedures.
How do you connect with your patients?
I connect with patients by providing them my undivided attention. I am sensitive to the fact that encounters with the medical system are often overwhelming. Therefore, I make it a point to explain all issues at a level that can be understood so patients are empowered to actively participate in decisions related to their health and treatment.
What are your interests outside of the office (hobbies, activities)?
I enjoy traveling, exploring new restaurants, and outdoor activities such as hiking and skiing. I also play in a local softball league and, foremost, I enjoy spending time with my family.
What is your advice for your patients?
Do not ignore changes in the way you feel, no matter how subtle they may be. Please do not hesitate to call me with any questions or concerns.
