About me

Don’t hold it against me, but I’m from New York. After I graduated from NYU, I began work as a psychiatric researcher. While there, a patient experienced a cardiac event on a new experimental anti-depressant, and that got me thinking. I realized I needed to understand more about the body if I wanted to understand the mind, and I loved that the doctors were able to bring this person back to life.
So, I returned to college for pre-med classes, and then I attended University of Pennsylvania for medical school. At that point, cardiology was foremost in my mind because I enjoyed the idea of long-term patient relationships combined with procedures and treatments that could truly relieve symptoms and improve and even prolong life. I was accepted to Harvard’s Beth Israel Hospital for residency and then returned to University of Pennsylvania for my cardiovascular fellowship. My special skills have been in ultrasound, nuclear and CT scanning, and I enjoy all aspects of cardiology but particularly valve problems.

About my practice

At Kaiser Permanente, we put patient care in the center of all we do. And that’s really what it’s all about – what is best for my patients. I appreciate the team approach among our physicians, nurse practitioners and nurses to look at the whole patient and the whole picture of care. My patients will tell you I am very upfront. As my patient, I believe that you and I form the most important team in making your health care decisions.

How I thrive

Exercise, eating well, hiking with my dogs, loving my family, and pounding on the piano or strumming a guitar during music sessions with my friends all serve to keep me whole. I visit New York every now and then, but there’s nothing like the inspirational beauty and climate of Colorado.
