Personal

The field of cardiac electrophysiology has grown beyond everyone’s expectations. With the advancement of technology, we are currently able to diagnose and treat heart rhythm disturbances that even 10 years ago seemed impossible. Furthermore, with extensive ongoing research, the future holds even more promise. Nothing is more gratifying than being able to tell a patient who has been troubled with an arrhythmia for days, months or even years, that they are now cured. And in those instances when a cure is not possible, we now have multiple drug and implantable device options available that can dramatically increase quality and often years of life. I am proud and excited to be a part of such a progressive field that has such a profound and positive influence on patients’ lives.

When I am away from my practice, I am usually spending time with my wife and three sons. I am very involved with my church and have had the privilege of being involved with annual medical mission trips to Lima, Peru since 2001, implanting pacemakers and defibrillators in underprivileged patients. In my free time, I enjoy fishing, music and woodworking.
