“I enjoy doing procedures that can dramatically improve the future for my patients. So much can be achieved with interventional cardiology and the results are immediate. What we’re doing here can be life-changing, whether it’s removing an occlusion, inserting a stent into an artery or simply fine-tuning a patient’s daily meds.”
