  • I am a board certified pediatric cardiologist. I also specialize in catheter-based cardiac interventions in adults with congenital and structural heart problems, such as device closure of PFO and ASD as well as transcatheter replacement of the pulmonary valve (Melody Valve). I have taught other physicians how to perform these interventions. I take pride in compassionate and timely expert care of my patients.
