    Philosophy of Care

    In my practice, I seek to involve my patients as much as possible in the their care while providing timely and effective cardiac evaluation and management services. I believe that lifestyles and diets are the foundation and source of both health and disease. I also believe the best care possbile can only be provided when patients understand their health problems and are partners in the process of healthcare. A personalized and individualized approach to the evaluation and treatment of cardiac issues is my goal with each patient.
