- Practicing Specialty: Cardiology, Interventional Cardiology

My goal is to provide the best care possible for my patients, with a focus on preventing disease progression and improving quality of life. My specialization includes the treatment of acute myocardial infarction and coronary interventions. I am very excited about our structural heart disease program that includes trans catheter aortic valve replacement since 2012. I also have a strong interest in vascular medicine and perform endovascular procedures for peripheral arterial disease.
Outside of work, I love to spend time with my wife and three wonderful daughters, traveling, literature and scuba diving.
