Professional Bio

I am triple board certified in internal medicine, cardiology and cardiac electrophysiology. I am a graduate of the University of Michigan and New York University School of Medicine. I completed internship and residency in internal medicine at NYU Medical Center. I completed fellowships in cardiology and cardiac electrophysiology at New York Presbyterian Hospital/Cornell Medical Center. I have been in practice since 2003. I have extensive research interests in sudden cardiac death, MRI safety of cardiac devices and cardiac device programming for LVAD patients. I have taught staff, RNs, residents and fellows. I have been an invited speaker to many national scientific sessions (ACC, AHA and HRS).
