Personal Statement

My clinical practice focuses on general cardiology and noninvasive cardiac imaging. My goal is to provide compassionate, holistic, team-based care for our patients, in both the clinic and hospital. I enjoy spending time learning about my patients and strive to provide them with the tools they need: ensuring that each family has a clear understanding of diagnoses and their implications, recommending evidence-based treatments, and utilizing a shared decision-making model to help patients succeed over the years. I care about optimizing quality of life and work hard to promote healthy lifestyle measures for my patients. Within cardiology, I am particularly interested congenital heart disease, fetal and pediatric echocardiography, long-term patient health, and medical education. It is my privilege to work with an excellent team in Austin and Houston to take care of our patients’ complex needs.
