We take a comprehensive, holistic approach to treating patients with lipid disorders. We see patients with complex, genetic lipid disorders but also care for those who are interested in prevention of chronic diseases such as cardiovascular disease.
Because the management of lipid disorders and cardiovascular risk is an area of medicine that is truly multidisciplinary, our clinic provides education to a range of healthcare professionals including medical students, medical residents, dietitians, physician assistants, and endocrinology and cardiology fellows.
I am a Cardiologist dedicated to Valvular heart disease and preventive cardiology. I have a particular interest in why lipids affect the progression of valve disease. A great, but not inclusive example is Lipoprotein(a) and aortic stenosis. As past president of the Pacific of the NLA, I have now moved up to the Executive committee and this year am serving as the Chair of the Membership Council.
The most exciting part of my job, is when a patient reaches their health and wellness goals! Our team approach to patient care and shared decision making allows for all members to provide support and care when it comes to heart health.
