About Me

I am a cardiologist at Memorial Cardiac and Vascular Institute specializing in advanced heart failure and transplant cardiology.

I have always wanted to help others feel better, improve their health, and recover from serious ailments. But it wasn't until my beloved grandmother developed valvular heart disease and heart failure that I became interested in cardiology and caring for some of the sickest patients with heart disease.

I enjoy going through the diagnostic process, getting to know a new patient, listening to their experience, concerns, and symptoms, and investigating until we reach a diagnosis. Then we tailor a plan together that best fits their illness, needs, and preferences.
