  • Cardiology

I value the doctor-patient relationship as the most important factor in my patients' well-being. My approach to the relationship is that we are a team and work together to accomplish a desired goal of my patient. My principle role is to provide the patient with accurate and the most up-to-date information about their condition or diagnosis so that my patient can make an informed medical decision. Every patient is a unique human being and should not be treated with a cookbook style of care. I am here to help each patient learn how to be their own 'physician' and better care for his or her illness.
