Sarah’s Heart

“I have been practicing cardiology since 1994, and I have dedicated my life to the treatment and prevention of cardiovascular disease. My Mom, Sarah, died from a massive heart attack when she was only 39. And, since that time, I knew I would be a physician.  Sarah’s Heart™ is dedicated to you, whether you are a woman with cardiovascular disease, a man or woman with a loved one with cardiovascular disease, or you simply want to know tips and tricks for prevention. I am thrilled to provide this empowering program and be on this journey with you.”
