Clinical Interest for Patients
I provide comprehensive care for patients with heart rhythm problems.

Care Philosophy
In the highly technology-driven specialty of clinical cardiac electrophysiology, I strive to provide patient-centered care based on the highest quality scientific evidence, best clinical practices, and effective communication. Together, these principles allow me to empower patients to make informed, autonomous arrhythmia care decisions consistent with their personal goals and values.

Personal Interests
When I am not working, I enjoy spending time with my wife and three children. I am an avid cyclist, skier, and guitarist.

Volunteer Activities
I serve in local and national roles in promoting improvement in the quality of cardiovascular care, including by promoting the use of novel health information technologies.

Information for Referring Providers

Clinical Interests for Referring Providers
As a board-certified clinical cardiac electrophysiologist, I provide comprehensive care for patients wtih heart rhythm disorders, including clinical consultation, arrhythmia device implantation and management, and invasive management of complex cardiac arrhythmias.

Research Interest for Referring Providers
My academic interests focus on measurement and improvement of quality of care by leveraging health information technology among patients with arrhythmias and arrhythmia devices. I am a recipient of a Research Career Development Award from the VA Office of Health Services Research and Development (VA HSR&D) evaluating real-world outcomes among veterans with implantable cardioverter defibrillators (ICDs). The product of this effort has been the establishment of the Outcomes among Veterans with Implantable Defibrillators (OVID) Registry. I also serves in national roles as a member of the Science and Publications Committee for the National Cardiovascular Data Registry (NCDR) ICD Registry and as a member of the development team for the Safety of Atrial Fibrillation Ablation Registry Initiative (SAFARI). I represent the American College of Cardiology's to the European Society of Cardiology's Atrial Fibrillation Registry Initiative. As a member of the VA’s Denver-based CART program (the VA National Program under the leadership of John Rumsfeld, MD PhD, by which all cardiology procedures are documented in the VA system), I am leading the development of CART-EP, a new comprehensive VA-wide implantable arrhythmia device health information technology platform spanning pre-implantation evaluation, documentation of the implantation procedure, in-clinic follow-up, and remote monitoring follow-up for veterans with pacemakers, implantable defibrillators, and cardiac resynchronization therapy devices. While simultaneously making care documentation more efficient, this new CART-EP module will integrate real-time data collection directly into the process of clinical care.
