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.

Care Philosophy
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.

Personal Interests
I am passionate about clean eating and healthy lifestyles. I enjoy hiking, road cycling, reading, writing poetry, and playing the piano.

Volunteer Activities
I have participated in mentoring young people. I would like to explore opportunities to help feed the hungry.

Public Speaking
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.

Information for Referring Providers

Clinical Interests for Referring Providers
I am an interventional cardiologist specializing in vascular medicine, venous disease management, and vascular wound care. As you know, venous insufficiency involves a broad spectrum of disease. Some of the patients have varicose veins, but many have other symptoms, such as leg pain/heaviness with ambulation or at the end of the day, unilateral or bilateral leg swelling, restless legs, leg cramps, skin discoloration, and active or healed skin ulcers. Thorough detailed evaluation done in our vascular medicine clinic helps us develop a collaborative, individualized plan of care. When indicated, superficial venous interventions (such as sclerotherapy, ablation, and/or phlebectomy) and/or deep venous stenting can provide significant predictable relief of symptoms and optimal patient satisfaction. I am here to help.
