Clinical Interest for Patients
I am interested in helping to relieve suffering due to varicose veins, old venous blood clots, leg swelling, leg pain, and chronic wounds.
As an interventional cardiologist specializing in wound care and venous disorders, including varicose veins, I have been fortunate to develop expertise to help patients with leg pain, leg swelling, recurrent blood clots, and leg ulcers. I approach each patient individually and utilize a holistic, systemic, functional medicine approach along with the most minimally invasive modern vein care when appropriate. Venous insufficiency involves a broad spectrum of presentations. Some patients have asymptomatic varicose veins, but many have symptoms that negatively impact quality of life. I listen. I care.
I am passionate about clean eating and healthy lifestyles. I enjoy hiking, road cycling, reading, writing poetry, and playing the piano.
I have participated in mentoring young people. I would like to explore opportunities to help feed the hungry.
I have given talks and lectures to the general public and other healthcare providers regarding Peripheral Arterial Disease, Venous Disease Management, Cardiovascular Risk, Preventing Amputations. I spoke at Northern Arizona University on Martin Luther King Jr. Day. I participate in community health fairs and health screenings.
