I am a clinical cardiologist specializing in the comprehensive management of co-existing cardiovascular disease and cancer as well as the cardio-toxic side effects of chemotherapy treatment. Through close collaboration with the cancer treatment team, my goal is to ensure the best outcomes for patients with cancer who are at risk for or who have concurrent cardiovascular disease. I work closely with the oncologists to monitor patient’s cardiovascular health during treatment and provide long-term follow-up cardiac care for cancer survivors. I also provide cardiac evaluation for patients with cancer who are scheduled to undergo major surgery or to receive potentially cardio-toxic cancer treatment.
My clinical research focuses on providing earlier detection of cardio-toxic side effects of cancer treatment through the use of specialized cardiac imaging tests. I am dedicated to finding new ways to prevent, diagnose, and treat cardiac disease as a complication of cancer treatment.
