The journey that a patient with congenital or acquired heart disease takes is complex and unique. I am humbled to share that journey with you by providing safe and high-quality care. I believe that family/primary care takers play a key role in patient’s clinical progress, for that reason, I make sure that each family understands their child’s condition and listen to care taker’s input.
My clinical interest in the management of pulmonary hypertension and/or right ventricular failure in patients with congenital heart disease.
