I see patients at


I love to get to know the patients and families well so that I can provide appropriate care and meet their expectations. I believe that cardiologists in academic centers should able to deliver tomorrow’s therapy to our sick patients today with excellent outcomes. I am passionate about treating complex heart and valve disease patients with minimally invasive approach or without open heart surgery. In my leisure time, I enjoy spending time with my family experiencing the outdoors.
