How did you choose your specialty?
It was a combination of personal & professional motivation. My grandfather developed heart disease at a young age, and I saw the impact of this on quality & quantity of life. Cardiology is a great combination of using your eyes, ears, hands, and brain. It is fast paced, rewarding, and challenging. As a pioneer in Preventive Cardiology I have been able to grow with & contribute to the development of this important field.
