My goal is to provide the best care possible for my patients with a focus on prevention of disease progression and improvement in quality of life. My specialization includes the treatment of acute myocardial infarction and coronary interventions. I also have a strong interest in vascular medicine and perform endovascular procedures for peripheral arterial disease. Outside of work I enjoy spending time with my two wonderful daughters, traveling, literature and scuba diving.
