  • Cardiology

Aristotle said, "We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence, then, is not an act, but a habit." Striving for superb care through the inspiration that I receive from my patients and their families on a daily basis has always been my goal in medicine. Balancing the science and art of medicine is of paramount importance in achieving that goal.
