Personal Statement

I am a general pediatric cardiologist specializing in congenital heart disease, fetal cardiology (diagnosing congenital heart disease while the baby is still in the womb), heart murmurs, pediatric chest pain, and various other clinical topics related to a child’s heart health. I chose to pursue pediatric cardiology because I recognize the stress and challenges that families can face while ensuring the health and safety of their child’s heart, and I love being a dedicated member of the team that can provide patience, compassion, and support during this journey. Caring for children’s hearts at all stages of development, especially during pivotal transitions, such as from fetus to newborn or from childhood to adolescence, brings me immense fulfillment. I am committed to providing the best care to my patients and their families, and look forward to providing the patients under my care with a more supported and healthier future.
