Philosophy of Care
“My approach is primarily patient-centered. I am focused on the right treatment at the right time for each individual patient. I strive to provide comprehensive cardiovascular care for patients with complex cardiac conditions by communicating clearly, working collaboratively, and always keeping the patient’s needs in mind.”
