I have practiced cardiology in Fairfield and Vacaville since
1987 and have patients who have been with me for 20 years or longer. My
patients will tell you that they appreciate my personal touch and many of them
come to me with referrals from family and friends.
I treat the entire range of cardiac conditions, from
hypertension to heart disease and congestive heart failure. My specialty is
interventional cardiology, which is a non-surgical procedure
for the diagnosis and repair of damaged vessels or other
heart structures. In 1992, I helped
establish the NorthBay Medical Center Cardiac Catheterization Lab and served as
the lab’s director until 2005.
In medical school, one of my professors was Christiaan
Barnard, the South African cardiac surgeon who perfo
rmed the world's first successful human-to-human
heart transplant. I was fortunate enough to watch him operate and to help take
care of his post-transplant patients. He inspired me to pursue a career in
I like my patients to be
well-informed about their health and I make sure they understand their
condition and how we will care for it. I will present the options that are
available and we will decide on a schedule of care together.
