Biography

I always knew I wanted to be a doctor, coming from a family of physicians I grew up surrounded by people who provided care for others. My parents demonstrated to me that the doctor patient relationship is an honor and a responsibility not to be taken lightly. What I love most about medicine is that it is the perfect union of humanism and science.

I am an advocate for my patients and any concerns that they may have and it is important to me that I take the time to listen when my patients talk to help allay any fears or worries. I understand that being a patient can be overwhelming. I want to make sure that I help people navigate through the complexities of healthcare and that they are comfortable throughout the process.

I want my patients to be proactive in their health and help them access the latest advancements in cardiology, while tailoring to the needs of each individual.
