I am a cardiologist with Memorial Cardiac and Vascular Institute, where I provide preventive cardiac care and treat patients with coronary artery disease, valvular heart disease, cardiac rhythm problems, congestive heart failure and other heart complications.
I also provide specialized cardiac care for athletes of all skill levels, offering pre-participation screenings and treating acute conditions such as chest pain, dizzy spells, decreased athletic performance and heart rhythm disturbances.
I encourage patients to be actively involved in their care as I follow them for months, years and even decades. I believe choosing a treatment plan should be a shared decision-making process and should incorporate a patient’s goals, lifestyle and beliefs.
I was exposed to cardiovascular medicine from a young age and have continued to immerse myself in the field since. I believe that medicine is a life-long learning process and that our patients are at the center of that learning.
Before joining Memorial, I was a Division I college athlete at the University of Pittsburgh. In addition, during my medical training, I was the Finish Line Medical Director for the Pittsburgh Marathon and helped to provide cardiac care to several college and professional sports teams in the Pittsburgh area.
