Why did you choose your specialty area?

Saving lives and helping others. I feel so lucky to be doing what I do everyday. Watching a patient walk out of the hospital after a cardiac arrest or a heart attack has been the greatest joy of my career. I also have a passion in treating patients with valvular heart disease, our field has made tremendous strides in recent years offering patients with aortic valve and mitral valve disease percutaneous and less invasive options. I also have expertise in treating patients with critical limb ischemia and saving patients from amputation.

How do you spend your spare time?

Spending time with my family, traveling, and playing tennis

#1 health tip that you can offer:

Be happy and cherish life. If you find this internal happiness, you will also feel the responsibility to protect your body to be able to enjoy it.
