  • Cardiothoracic Surgery

It's my pleasure to return to New Jersey, my home state, to practice cardiac surgery.  In the age of electronic medical records, it's easy for data entry to become a distraction during a patient's time with the doctor.  It's important for me to provide personalized care for my patients and to give them 100% of my attention, without letting the computer interfere with our interaction.
