Medical School:  University of Texas Medical Branch

College:  University of Texas

How long have you worked at Flow Vascular?  Since 2017

What influenced you to get into this field of work? Having been in Internal Medicine for years, I have seen some of the catastrophic complications that can come to many patients who suffer long term disease.  I would see patients with Hypertension and Diabetes that suffered from untreated Peripheral Artery Disease, presenting with complications and non-healing wounds.  I started really working with them and was able to see such an improvement in quality and quantity of life for these patients. It helped gear my decisions to move into a vascular field. 

What makes you good at what you do?  I try to create a patient-centered relationship, where together, an individual care plan is developed based of each patient’s specific goals of care. Communication is key and once a Patient-Practitioner Partnership is strong, true quality medical care can happen.
