Care Philosophy

As an academic cardiologist, I direct the University of Minnesota Health cardio-oncology clinic on the University of Minnesota campus. I am dedicated to preventing, diagnosing, and treating heart disease in patients during every phase of cancer: pre-treatment, active treatment, remission, and long-term recovery. I provide ongoing collaborative care for all my cardio-oncology patients, including patients referred by providers inside and outside M Health and those who self-refer. The M Health cardio-oncology program provides opportunities for eligible patients to participate in ongoing clinical research. In addition to cardio-oncology, I am experienced in cardiac imaging, women’s heart health, and general cardiology, including using advanced imaging techniques to help prevent cardiac disease.
