WHERE I PROVIDE CARE
Profile
ABOUT ME
Helping patients make informed decisions about cardiovascular care, while encouraging them to maintain a healthy lifestyle, is what I love most about my clinical work. In addition to patient care, I am engaged in research on patient preferences, quality of life, geriatrics, and aging, and stable ischemic heart disease. Outside of work, I enjoy activities with my husband and three children, whether it is at a school or sporting event, a family camping trip, or another type of adventure. I also enjoy running trails and downhill skiing.

all was good, excellent Doctor and Staff.

I am satisfied with the care and kindness I received. I appreciated the nurse calling to check on the medicine to make sure I am taking the correct medicine.

My expectations we're greatly exceeded, everyone from the receptionist to the doctor was extremely courteous and knowledgeable. Everything seemed so organized and well managed and everyone is really good at what they do and seem to enjoy doing it.

1st visit, Doctor gave me an unusual amount of time, thank you
