Insurance

Before scheduling your appointment, we recommend you contact your insurance company to verify that the OHSU Health location or provider you plan to visit is included in your network. Your insurance company will also be able to inform you of any copayments, co–insurance, or deductibles that will be your responsibility. If you proceed in scheduling an appointment and your health insurance benefits do not participate with OHSU providers, your out of pocket liability may be higher. Visit the billing and insurance section of our site for more information.

Biography

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.
