With experience as both a pediatric and adult congenital cardiologist, I have had the privilege of caring for patients with congenital heart disease across the age spectrum. From neonates to those in their 70s and still going strong, I learn from my patients and their families every day. They constantly reinforce that care is not only about the heart condition, but about the person with the heart condition. Working with our BACH adult congenital team and other Heart Center teams, I strive to give my patients the best care available and to keep them as healthy as possible now and for the decades to come.
