Philosophy of Care

I make it my goal to never let a patient to leave my office without a complete understanding of their disease and their treatment plan. I remain available throughout their care, which is often the course of their lifetime. That is, in part, why I chose the heart failure specialty–to build close and caring partnerships that produce better health outcomes.
