I am a cardiologist at Memorial Cardiac and Vascular Institute. I treat patients with chest pain, shortness of breath and other symptoms related to cardiac conditions.
My father was a doctor and his work inspired me to pursue a career in medicine. I started by mopping his office floors. While doing that, I got to meet his patients and saw firsthand how his worked impacted their lives. I knew that I wanted to help people in a similar way.
At Memorial, we operate like a family unit. We are here for each other, collaborate closely on patient cases and prioritize compassion and respect. I think patients feel this when they come to us, and it greatly impacts their experience and care.
When working with patients, I often joke around with them, get to know them and enjoy hearing their stories. Our health is impacted by our life and sometimes, the answer to their concern or problem is in the story, not in the original complaint that brought them to my office.
