I am a cardiologist trained in cardiovascular medicine, advanced heart failure/transplant cardiology, and critical care medicine. I help direct both the mechanical circulatory support and durable left ventricular assist device programs, as well as the cardiac intensive care unit. I am passionate about finding ways to improve the care, outcomes, and quality of life for patients with end-stage heart disease and critical illness. While treating patients, I try to blend creativity, innovation, and a touch of humor with a practical approach to medicine. It is a privilege to work with patients and their families, a unique gift that I take very seriously.

Clinical Interests
My goal is to identify and test strategies for improving patient outcomes and quality of life, particularly for those individuals with durable left ventricular assist devices and for those who require cardiovascular critical care due to acute illness.
