Cardiac electrophysiologist

Bio:   In my academic and scholarship endeavors, I continue to be guided by a commitment to patient care and a desire to teach, learn, and conduct research in a multifaceted and multidisciplinary field. Cardiac electrophysiology is a dynamic and innovative field, pushing at the boundaries of science and medicine; new research findings are quickly translated to the clinical setting. In this environment of active research endeavors and strong clinical growth, I have sought to bring innovative approaches, both clinical and translational, to the treatment of cardiac arrhythmias.

Clinical Interests
My clinical interests include management of complex arrhythmias through the use of medications and/or ablation technologies for all types of tachycardias, including atrial fibrillation and ventricular tachycardia; cardiac device placements such as biventricular pacemakers and defibrillators; and implantation of left atrial appendage closure devices for stroke prevention in patients with atrial fibrillation. I have a strong focus on complex ablations in patients with life-threatening arrhythmias such as ventricular tachycardia/fibrillation and in patients with complex congenital heart abnormalities.

Care Philosophy
Cardiology and electrophysiology are highly technical fields utilizing the latest and most advanced technology to deliver outstanding care. However, at the end of the day, I believe that the best care for my patients involves listening to them, informing them about their illness, involving them in their care, and always doing what is in their best interests.

Volunteer Activities
I came here as a refugee from war and have been fortunate to gain the experiences that I have had, so that I can give back to the community. I have worked in homeless shelters, taught GED and ESL, vaccinated at-risk youths from hepatitis B, and worked to treat and prevent HIV/AIDS in impoverished communities.
