About Me

I come from a long line of physicians. My father was one of the inventors of the Endoscopy procedure in the 1960s and my great uncle was one of the two founders of the subspecialty, Pediatric Cardiology. Following in their footsteps in 1982 at age nineteen, I co-developed the Nissenbaum/Gyure serum protein medical test, then considered to be the most accurate of its kind with a 96% recovery rate.

After completing my fellowship, I decided to practice in the Midwest having enjoyed the lifestyle. In my previous role as an Invasive Cardiologist in Branson, MO for seven years, I helped bring its reputation up to the top 5% in the U.S. for overall cardiac care and management of heart failure for six out of those seven years.

I love my patients and will do all I can to help them. While in Branson, my colleagues were very kind in naming me as their favorite Cardiologist through a confidential vote taken every two years by physicians for their preference, should they or their family members need a Cardiologist.

On a side note, I have a passion for the piano and have given numerous performances including one at Steinway Hall across from Carnegie Hall in New York City.
