Personal Statement

My specialty is Hypertension, with a focus on pharmacologic and non-pharmacologic treatment. I also treat hypertension based on its cause which in many cases is attributable to genetics and lifestyle (diet, weight, exercise) and in others to emotional factors. Understanding the cause enables better approach to treatment of the individual patient.
