Professional Statement
I believe that patients always come first and exemplify that in my holistic approach to patient care. I believe advancements in the field of heart failure serve to further improve the care of my patients, and I strive to be at the forefront of such technology.

WomanAtRiskofSCAD

As a woman, I am especially concerned with heart disease. It’s the No. 1 killer of women in the U.S., attributed to 1 in 3 deaths each year. What’s even more concerning is the added risk of a specific heart attack unlike anything that’s commonly seen. A heart attack that not only affects healthy older women but women in their 30s as well. These heart attacks are caused by spontaneous coronary artery dissection, or SCAD.

It’s an inevitable truth that we are all aging. And while it’s quite normal to lose some verve due to natural aging, it’s important to understand that fatigue and general tiredness may also be caused by a malfunctioning heart.

AnxietyOrHeartAttack

Unfortunately, panic attacks and heart attacks can feel frighteningly similar. Both can cause shortness of breath, chest pains and dizziness. Here’s what to do in a scary and uncertain situation.
