“My motto is provide the right care, to the right patient, at the right time.”
My approach is to listen to the patient and work with them to form a team to address their healthcare needs. By the end of our visit together, my goal is for the patient to understand the medical issues involved and have all their questions answered to the best of my ability. When I was in training, most of the technology we have today did not exist. Instead, we relied on listening to the patient's story and completing a thorough examination of the patient. Today, cardiology remains a field in which it is possible to learn a great deal about a patient's heart condition by listening, rather than by ordering extensive tests. I enjoy this medical detective aspect of my work.
Why The Everett Clinic?
I joined The Everett Clinic in 1984 to start the coronary angioplasty program, a new procedure at that time that utilized a small balloon to push apart plaque buildup in an artery to restore normal blood flow to the heart. I chose The Everett Clinic because it was a well-respected multispecialty group with excellent physicians and I believed that the Pacific Northwest would be a great place to raise my family.
