About Me

As a cardiologist, I specialize in treating people who have hypertrophic cardiomyopathy (HCM), which is an inherited condition that leads to thickening of the heart muscle and can cause shortness of breath, chest pressure, palpitations, lightheadedness, blackouts, and sudden death. At NYU Langone’s dedicated Hypertrophic Cardiomyopathy Program, we manage people’s symptoms and provide care so patients can have excellent quality of life.

Imaging tests play a key role in understanding and treating people who have HCM—I have expertise in reading and interpreting echocardiography studies and stress tests. From these tests, I can determine the best individualized treatment plan for each person. I work closely with experts in cardiac surgery, radiology, and genetic counseling, as well as electrophysiologists at our Heart Rhythm Center. Through our many collaborations, we are able to prove the highest quality of specialized healthcare.

When I work with patients, I prioritize getting to know them and making them feel comfortable. I want them to be active participants in their care, and I make sure to address their individual needs and concerns.

Some people may have other heart conditions in addition to HCM, for which I also provide care. In addition to HCM, I manage high cholesterol, high blood pressure, obesity, coronary artery disease, atrial fibrillation, and valve disease, such as aortic stenosis, in collaboration with my colleagues at NYU Langone.

In my research, I aim to better understand the link between bone metabolism and calcification of the heart valves using echocardiography and PET–CT imaging. Mitral annular calcification can occur in HCM, and I am interested in how it may lead to left ventricular outflow tract obstruction and symptoms. I also work on examining the prevalence of HCM in the general population using modern imaging methods. For my research, I was awarded a Glorney-Raisbeck Fellowship Award from the New York Academy of Medicine.
