Philosophy of Care
"As a cardiac imaging specialist, I strive to make meaningful differences to my patients, both from the interpretation of their cardiovascular diagnostic testing, as well as in direct care in the clinic or at the bedside. I utilize a patient-centered care model to achieve the best personalized plans and outcomes, based on each patient’s unique experiences and values. The privilege of serving our patients is a joy I experience with each work day."
