I am an interventional cardiologist at Memorial Healthcare System where I treat patients with acute coronary syndromes, severe congestive heart failure and other heart complications.
I am also trained in performing cardiac catheterization from the radial artery located in the wrist, instead of the traditional procedure performed through the femoral artery. This technique is gaining popularity in Europe and the United States due to the reduced risks for complications, reduced pain and quicker recovery times.
My goals as a physician are to educate patients about their heart conditions and empower them to make decisions about their care. There are often many possible treatment options for patients – including medication, cardiac procedures and lifestyle changes. I want to help each patient find the option that best suits their needs. It all starts with understanding how their heart is currently performing, and the options for how we can improve cardiac function to better their quality of life.
Prior to joining Memorial, I had the privilege of training at Henry Ford Hospital in Detroit, Michigan, which is one of the leading cardiology training sites in the country. While there, I cared for patients with severe coronary artery disease and cardiogenic shock, and performed complex coronary interventions.Related Medical Services
