I am a pediatric cardiologist who specializes in diagnosing and treating heart rhythm disorders (electrophysiology) in children and those with congenital heart disease. My specialization includes catheter ablation for arrhythmias (electrophysiology study), and implantation of pacemakers and implantable cardioverter-defibrillators (ICDs).
In my field of interest, I also evaluate and manage children with cardiac channelopathies, such as congenital long-QT syndrome. My research involves all aspects of pediatric heart rhythm problems.
During my residency and fellowship training, my mentors inspired me to specialize in pediatric cardiology. I use a family-centered approach, which is important when dealing with heart rhythm problems that can often be difficult to understand. Specializing in an interventional field, my priorities are in safety and understanding the wishes of my patient and their families.
When I’m not practicing medicine, I enjoy spending time with my wife and our two daughters.
