Since beginning a private cardiology practice in 1991 I have developed very specific interests including: preventive cardiology, both primary and secondary, cardiac rehabilitation, sports cardiology, and peer review and physician discipline.

My primary efforts, after interventional cardiology training at UTMB, have been engaging as a full-time practice of invasive cardiology at Citizens Medical Center in Victoria, Texas. I routinely evaluated between 75 and 100 patients per week, caring for both clinic and hospital patients. With my partners, I participated in an every fourth day call rotation.

I was instrumental in developing the formal cardiac rehabilitation program and in 2001 became medical director and supervisor of the citizen?s cardiac rehabilitation program. The cardiac rehab program was comprehensive, including all phases and components of cardiac rehab. In 2002, the Citizens cardiac rehab program became, the first and to my knowledge the only program in the Victoria area to be certified by the AACVPR. I was the Medical Director, as well as directly supervised cardiac rehab three times weekly, until 2011, when time constraints necessitated that I pass on directorship. The program has continued to be successful both medically and financially, and I continue to offer expert advice to the program on a regular basis.

My interest, both personally and professionally, have naturally led me to the field of Sports Cardiology. I consider myself an athlete, and continue to compete regularly in paddling and bicycling events. I regularly participate in the medical support of both local athletic events and local sports teams. In the last five years, the American College of Cardiology has recognized a subsection titled; Sports Cardiology. I have endeavored to promote my knowledge in the field of sports cardiology ever since.
