Heart Valve Surgeon

I believe my greatest strength is that my philosophy and my strength for patient care comes from the fact that I grew up in a family of patients, not doctors.
My father had three different cancers before he passed away. My mother has battled two different cancers and heart disease. She had open heart valve and bypass surgery. I’ve sat in doctors’ waiting rooms. I’ve sat in emergency rooms and the ICU, watching the people I love fight their illnesses.
For me, being a caring and successful as a doctor has always been very straight forward. I simply treat every patient and family as if they were my own. In fact, I give every family my personal cell phone number, to call me anytime they have concerns. This is not just my strength, it’s my passion. It’s me.
