About Me

I completed fellowship training programs at the University of Massachusetts and Yale-New Haven Hospital, respectively. While I enjoy all areas of cardiology, I have focused my efforts on the field of electrophysiology. This provides with me the opportunity to care for a demographically diverse group of patients with a wide variety of cardiovascular disorders.

My wife and I enjoy exploring the various dining opportunities that Jacksonville has to offer. We particularly enjoy wine tasting and have made several trips to the Napa and Sonoma valleys in California, one of our favorite destinations. I am a passionate sports fan, routing for the Yankees and the New York Giants. It is my routine to watch my home town teams while reviewing the latest publications from my favorite medical journals. After enduring several difficult New England winters, I particularly enjoy the longer beach season in Jacksonville and exploring the various water attractions and amusement parks.
