Preventive Cardiology, Echocardiography, Atrial Fibrillation


For the last decade, I have been writing about diet and cardiovascular disease, preventive cardiology, personal medical devices, and medical management of atrial fibrillation. As such, I've become very aware of misinformation widely available on the internet and am passionate about providing accurate, unbiased information on these topics for patients.
