From the Doctor

I love practicing clinical cardiology. It allows me to develop rich and lasting relationships with my patients and their families. Combining clinical medicine with research gives me the satisfaction of caring not only for my patients but also allowing me to participate in the development of therapies for future generations.

I have many volunteer interests. Locally, I donate time to Mission House and the Sulzbacher Clinic at the Beach. I also serve as the President of the Board of CardioStart International, an organization that brings international relief and cardiovascular surgery to underdeveloped countries.

I have served as the Director of Research for Jacksonville Heart Center, Chairman of the Department of Medicine and the Chief of the Division of Cardiology at Baptist Beaches Hospital. I have more than 30 scientific publications and have participated in more than 100 clinical trials. I have three grown children and a wonderful wife.
