Care Philosophy:
I strive to provide every patient with compassionate and evidence-based care relative to evaluating, preventing, and treating cardiovascular diseases. I understand that the recommendations I make to improve a patient's health and well-being must be offered within the context of their own goals and interests, as well as the recommendations of other health care providers.

Exercise training and exercise testing responses in patients with heart disease, heart failure, or cancer
