Philosophy of Care

I love interacting with children and I love physiology. I seek to find the best treatment option for every patient, taking into account the unique anatomic, physiologic, social and emotional considerations that apply to each individual case.


During my pediatric cardiology fellowship at Columbia-Presbyterian Medical Center, I first became interested in the impact of congenital heart disease on a child’s ability to exercise. After completing my fellowship I worked for two years as a staff pediatric cardiologist at Downstate Medical Center in Brooklyn NY. I then joined the faculty at Tufts Medical Center and started an exercise physiology program there. I ultimately became the chief of Pediatric cardiology and served in that role until November 2002, when I joined Boston Children’s Hospital’s Pediatric Cardiology Department and became Director of the Exercise Physiology Laboratory. In addition to caring for patients with cardiovascular disease, I have engaged in extensive clinical research focusing upon the effect of congenital heart disease on a patient’s exercise function, the benefits of exercise in this population and the insights that exercise physiology testing can provide about the health of these patients. I have also studied novel ways of assessing a patient’s heart function and explored novel treatment approaches for patients with muscular dystrophy and patients with Fontan physiology.
