I believe my greatest strength is that I love cardiac surgery because of the tremendous positive impact I can make in the lives of patients. There is no greater personal joy and satisfaction than being able to help patients in their journey from crippling symptoms to health.
I recognize that no two patients are alike and believe in delivering personalized care to each and every patient. I am patient, thoughtful, empathetic and detail oriented.
