About Me

What made you want to become a health care provider or what is your earliest memory of wanting to be one?

As a teenager, I was coping with a family member's illness. Along with providing emotional comfort and support, I was eager to learn about their medical condition and treatment.  I knew then that I wanted to help others as a physician and learn about the complexities and management of diseases. 

What do you love most about your specialty? / Why did you choose your specialty?

I love that the field of cardiology keeps advancing. It is a robust field and is constantly progressing. Heart disease is the leading cause of illness in men and women; Cardiologists prevent and treat heart disease, allowing patients to lead healthier lives. 

How do you connect with your patients?

I have an outgoing personality, and find ways to connect with each of my patients individually. I believe in a patient-centered approach to medicine. I take the time to listen to each patient, and together we are able to customize a treatment regimen that is right. 

What are your interests outside of the office (hobbies, activities)?

There is nothing that I love more than spending time with my family. I also enjoy spending time outdoors, traveling, and exercising. 

What is your advice for your patients?

Be positive, eat healthy, try to get a good night's sleep, exercise and refrain from unhealthy habits like smoking. You know your body best; if something doesn't seem quite right, seek out medical attention early.
