About Me

When I was 10 years old, my mother had a life-threatening illness. We traveled from our small town in Arkansas to Dallas, Texas, for a surgery that saved her life. It was a profound experience that made me want to be a doctor.

During my surgical training, I watched surgeries performed on babies with congenital heart disease. It was the most amazing thing I’d ever seen, and it convinced me that I wanted to work with people who had heart disease for the rest of my life. For more than 30 years, I’ve been treating patients of all ages, from newborns to adults, who have complex structural problems of the heart.

When people come to my office for a consultation, they are usually scared and nervous about having surgery. Almost more than my medical expertise, what they really want to know is that I care and will listen to their concerns. I let them know that they can trust me, I explain what needs to be done, and I walk them through the treatment process.

It’s a great day at work when all of my patients are doing well, their families are happy, and we’ve taught bright young doctors-in-training something new about healthcare and heart disease.
