I am an interventional cardiologist and a specialist in peripheral arterial disease. This means I have expertise in diagnosing and treating heart artery disease (which impairs blood flow to and from the heart) and peripheral arterial disease (a circulatory problem in which narrowed arteries reduce blood flow to the limbs). I use a variety of minimally invasive techniques to treat these conditions.
I became impassioned about this field because it has personally affected my own family. When I was in medical school, my father had a heart artery event that was treated by an interventional cardiologist. It became clear that this would become the career path of my life.
I enjoy practicing medicine in Jackson because it is similar in size to the community where I grew up, and because there is a real need for the type of care I provide. I like being able to get to know my patients well, and I look forward to forming long relationships as I treat their arterial heart disease throughout the course of their lives.
My approach to patient care is the same as it would be for my own family who are affected by heart arterial disease. I want them to have the very best care available and to provide the clearest communication about the disease they are facing.
