Personal Statement

As a medical student, a wise woman advised me to “always listen to your patients.”  

Throughout my career I have taken that advice to heart.  I treat my patients as though they are family with personalized attention to each patient and their loved ones to ensure they understand their medical situation, the treatment options and their path toward wellness.  

My unique and unparalleled expertise in both complex open surgical techniques and minimally invasive transcatheter therapies allows me to offer my patients the best possible treatment for their medical condition.
