I am a board-certified cardiologist and electrophysiologist and an assistant professor of medicine and cardiology at Mount Sinai School of Medicine. I have more than 20 years of experience and am a specialist in cardiac electrophysiology: I evaluate the results of detailed technical procedures that determine abnormal heart rhythms and then design treatments appropriate for them.

 I have expertise in:

*         Arrhythmias

*         Atrial Fibrillation

*         Atrial Flutter

*        Cardiac Arrest

*        Electrophysiology Study and Ablation

*         Pacemaker and Defibrillator Insertion and Management

*       Paroxysmal Supraventricular Tachycardia     Ventricular Fibrillation

*         Ventricular Tachycardia

I am the principal investigator in a cardiac clinical trial called The Vest Prevention of Early Sudden Death Trial (VEST) PREDiction of ICD Therapies (PREDICTS). I graduated from medical school at Brown University and am a member of the Hellenic Medical Society of New York. I am also a fellow of the Heart Rhythm Society.
