About Me

I moved to North Florida in 2010 to serve my medical residency, followed by a pair of fellowships. My family and I immediately fell in love with the area, including the beaches, parks, and local eateries.

My primary goal as a physician is to improve the quality and extend the life of my patients. As a cardiologist and EP, I perform a number of procedures that can accomplish these goals. I value the relationships I form with my patients, as understanding their unique circumstances is essential in formulating the best plan for each patient.

Outside of the office, I enjoy spending time with my family, woodworking, the occasional round of golf and watching college football.
