About Lara

I specialize in Heart and Vascular Care. I became a healthcare provider because I love to help my patients live the life they want to live. My patients can count on me to provide extraordinary care because I believe in shared decision making. While providers know more about disease processes and therapies, patients know what they want out of life. Some patients want to play with their grandchildren without getting short of breath, and I want to see improvements in functional class and test results. When we work together to create and achieve their goals, their outcomes always improve. We make a great team.

My little something extra

Because of my passion for my patients, I applied and was awarded a grant to provide heart patients with cutting edge remote heart monitoring technology. I published the results nationally to help improve outcomes for heart patients everywhere.
