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.
