Philosophy of Medicine

"Growing up on a farm I was always trying to take care of the various critters making sure they were well fed, warm and their wounds were taken care of. I wanted them to be happy and healthy. But, when my father became ill my questions became more about why someone was sick and how could I use that knowledge to make them feel better for longer. Naturally this led me to pursue a medical profession.

As a Cardiologist, I often first meet my patients as they experience a serious, sometimes life threatening, and life changing event. It is important for me to be able to clearly convey not just what we are doing to help them, but why are doing it. If I can explain to someone in terms they understand, how and why we are doing something there is a much greater chance that they will have more fulfilling and functional years ahead."
