Emily Christopher is a nationally certified Physician Assistant who specializes in caring for patients with heart valve conditions. She chose to pursue medicine after growing up watching her grandfather, a pediatric oncologist, care for his patients with compassion and dedication. She is passionate about advocating for patients to receive the highest quality of care and helping people better understand their medical conditions and treatment options. She chose heart valve medicine because of her interest in the structure and function of the heart muscle and the innovative minimally invasive treatment options in the field.
