Personal Statement

I am an Assistant Professor of Medicine in the Division of Cardiology at Weill Cornell Medical College and NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital. I am a preventive cardiologist and clinical lipid specialist in the preventive cardiology program to help those patients who are at high risk for heart disease and those who have premature heart disease or heart attacks. I serve as an attending physician on the inpatient services including the intensive care unit and cardiology floor units. I interpret echocardiograms, nuclear stress test tests, and vascular imaging studies. My goal is to advocate and provide for high quality, compassionate and individualized care for my patients.
