Medical Director, Clinical Cardiology Program, Memorial Hospital West
I am a cardiologist and Medical Director of Clinical Cardiology Program at Memorial Hospital West. I lead a team of cardiologists and specialists in electrophysiology, heart failure and cardiac imaging. We treat patients with arrythmias, heart failure and other heart disorders, but also focus on preventive cardiology to help people avoid heart disease in the first place.
A big focus of our practice is on educating the community about how to lead a healthy lifestyle that will support their heart and overall wellbeing.
I come from a medical family with four physicians. As the youngest brother, it felt natural for me to follow their lead into a career in medicine.
My goal when working with patients is to make sure they feel comfortable. I want them to be able to share what they are experiencing with me, voice their concerns and ask their questions so we can work together on the changes and treatments they need.
One of the most gratifying experiences for me is seeing my patients outside of the office and hospital walls – seeing them thriving and living their life thanks to the care we were able to provide for them.
