Patient Care Philosophy

I understand that having a heart rhythm problem can be anxiety producing for both patients and their families. I pride myself on providing world class, advanced EP care, while supporting the patient and their family through the process. I work closely with our other UW teams in heart failure, surgery and anesthesia, to provide the best outcomes for our patients.
