I strongly advocate for a highly individualized, multidisciplinary approach to care to ameliorate risk for complex adult congenital heart disease patients. I aim to provide a seamless transition from pediatric to adult providers in a way that is financially sustainable. Further, I wish to empower my patients with the knowledge of disease processes and all possible options for care to facilitate informed decision making and ensure optimal quality of life, respecting patients’ individual choices.
