From the Doctor

I am proud to be a physician because I care about humanity, enjoy promoting health and fighting cardiovascular diseases. After medical school, I volunteered to assist in the development of the first electronic heart failure data registry at Jackson Memorial Hospital in Miami.

I believe that listening to patients, being empathetic and providing the best available information, while also allowing patients to actively participate in their care, are very effective ways to establish an excellent patient-physician relationship, which is crucial for positive outcomes.

I enjoy sharing time with my family, including our dog, by going to the beach, traveling, cooking or simply talking about life.
