Renown Institute for Heart and Vascular Health
University of Nevada, Reno School of Medicine
As a family physician, I have enjoyed offering family-oriented, comprehensive primary care to all ages. Most recently, I have had the unique opportunity to focus my interests in the treatment of cardiometabolic and vascular disease through my position with the Renown Institute for Health and Vascular Health in Reno, NV, where I have practiced since April, 2018. My practice consists of the treatment of cardiometabolic and vascular disorders including care of complex and resistant hypertensive disease, hyperlipidemia and atherosclerosis, venous thromboembolic disease and anticoagulation medicine, diabetes, and aortic disease. Additionally, I maintain a primary care practice with the Silver Sage Center for Family Medicine in Reno, NV.
Previous to my current positions, I served as the Chief Medical Officer for a Reno-based federally-qualified health center, Community Health Alliance, from 2012-2018 where I provided both clinical and administrative roles while championing several projects specifically targeting the care of cardiometabolic disease effecting the underserved and economically-disadvantaged populations including design and implementation of the Center for Complex Care, implementation of the AHA Target BP program within the CHA health centers, the clinical pharmacist program targeting care of diabetes and hypertension, and the Team Care Medicine program.
I have completed research in the areas of public health, global health and community medicine and have participated in research and program development to improve global health abroad and served as attending physician for medical bridages throughout Central America.
My family and I have called Reno/Lake Tahoe, Nevada our home since 2004.
