I am a pediatric cardiologist at Joe DiMaggio Children’s Hospital with expertise in heart failure, heart transplantation, pulmonary hypertension and exercise stress testing in children. I came to JDCH in 2017 to participate as a physician in the hospital’s busy heart failure and cardiomyopathy, transplant and mechanical circulatory support programs, as well as and conduct research on the outcomes of heart disease in children.
Prior to joining Memorial Healthcare System, I worked at Children’s Medical Center, UTSW Medical Center in Dallas, Texas, where I was an associate professor of pediatrics, director of Exercise Stress Testing and medical director of the Heart Failure and Heart Transplant Programs. Prior to that, I was the medical director of Pediatric Heart Failure and Heart Transplantation and director of Exercise Testing at the University of Louisville in Louisville, Kentucky from 2004 to 2011. I completed my Pediatric Cardiology Fellowship at Children’s Hospital of Colorado (formerly, the Children’s Hospital Denver) in Denver, Colorado.
I have many years of experience working with children and their families while treating the children for a variety of heart conditions. In addition to providing patient care, I am also involved in several ongoing clinical research studies.
I have also written extensively about pediatric heart failure, exercise stress testing and pulmonary hypertension in children. I have made dozens of presentations at meetings at national and international conferences.
In addition, I am an active member of the International Society for Heart & Lung Transplantation, the American Heart Association, the Pulmonary Hypertension Association and the Pulmonary Vascular Research Institute. I have served as a member of the Pediatric Heart Transplant Study Group and on the United Network for Organ Sharing’s Region 4 Review Board.
