Practice Philosophy: My approach is to help people enjoy the life they have. In addition to both medical and surgical therapies, I believe that leading a healthy lifestyle through diet and exercise is essential for this goal. Whether you are healthy, someone with chronic heart failure on medical therapy, or post advanced heart failure therapies including transplantation and ventricular assist devices, leading a healthy lifestyle are essential. My job is to help people understand their medical challenges and provide direction on how to overcome those challenges.
