Get to Know Me
What are some of the specific conditions you treat?
Some of the specific conditions that I treat are heart failure, pulmonary hypertension, cardiac amyloidosis, and heart failure care for established LVAD community patients.
What techniques or procedures do you use in your practice?
Some of the techniques that I use in my practice include diuretic infusion therapy, iron infusion therapy, monitoring of device implants, and indicating a patient's fluid volume level. I also perform clinical nursing assessments and collaborative medical management with the patient's cardiologist to provide the latest in evidence-based medicine, implantable devices, and treatment care plans for heart failure patients.
Describe some of your professional highlights.
I developed an outpatient infusion therapy model of care to reduce hospital readmissions for heart failure patients.
What would you like patients to know about your approach to care?
I ensure all treatment options are integrated into the most innovative, up-to-date, evidence-based therapies for the treatment of patients with heart failure. I provide comprehensive, holistically-minded, individualized care plans to meet patients' personal healthcare goals and needs.
