New & Established Patients Call

Over the last 30 years the most satisfying and fulfilling aspect of my career has been the interactions that I have with patients in clinic, in the hospital or in the catheterization laboratory. I have tremendous respect for patients and I am very sensitive to their needs, fears and concerns. Bringing hope to patients has been a goal in every interaction I have with patients and their family members. I look forward to taking care of patients with cardiovascular issues for many years to come.
