Philosophy of Care

“I look at the entire vascular tree — the arteries, capillaries, and veins that carry blood to each part of the body — and try to synthesize and link them together. I examine how the patient’s diseases interact and how they put the patient at risk for other diseases and related cardiac events.

“I believe in a lifestyle focused treatment approach, because about 80% of the conditions I see can be modified by lifestyle. I talk with my patients about how diet, exercise, and activity influence their health.”
