biography

I have been very fortunate to have been able to attend some of the best schools in the world and to learn from some of the greatest teachers and doctors alive. I am also very aware that my success is in large part due to the support and encouragement of my family. I am very thankful to everyone who has been a part of my life and helped me grow personally and professionally. My biography link below describes some of my medical experience, practice philosophy, and interests that I have. My curriculum vitae link opens my resume which describes in more detail my professional and educational background. I feel that it is only fair that my patients who trust me to help make the best health choices possible have a chance to understand who their doctor is and where their doctor has been.

Biography Curriculum vitae

I believe very strongly in following the current published guidelines from the American College of Cardiology and the American Heart Association to provide my patients with the most scientifically sound and advanced cardiac care. The guidelines rely heavily on medical evidence from clinical trials and provide the foundation for the most educated recommendations I can offer. However, as I mention to many of my patients, I do not rely only on the guidelines as everyone is different. Every medicine has potential side effects. And not every invasive procedure will help a patient achieve the quality of life that he or she dreams. I will always try to keep the science in perspective, and will often discuss what I would recommend if that particular patient were my family member.

I am enjoying my practice in Tacoma, Puyallup and Auburn, Washington very much. The best part about being a doctor is the opportunity to be welcomed into the lives of my patients, to work together to try to help each patient live longer and feel better. The Pulse Heart Institute where I work has very dedicated physicians and staff. We all work together day and night to share our expertise, knowledge, and caring with all our patients in Pierce County and South King County.
