My Philosophy

Communication and education are the keystones of my practice. Open communication with patients and their primary care physicians is essential for early detection of heart rhythm abnormalities, and education is vital for informed decision making by the patient, primary care physician, and specialist. As a heart rhythm specialist, my primary focus is providing relief of symptoms caused by heart rhythm disturbances. However, I believe this is best done as a collaborative effort, looking at all possible methods of multi-disciplinary care and comprehensive risk factor management by medical specialists and nutritionists.
