Why cardiology? Brooke says, “I have always been passionate
about cardiology because heart disease runs in my family. I also like that cardiology allows me to
improve patients’ lives by incorporating lifestyle education as well as modern
Why Lexington? “I chose Lexington because it reminds me of
my hometown in Texas. My hometown is also a small rural community, and
the Lexington population makes me feel right at home. I love that
everyone knows everyone and people are extremely friendly.”
“The best part of working with my patients is
hearing the stories that make each person unique. I like getting to know my
patients on a deeper level than their diagnosis list. I enjoy learning
about their families, hobbies and passions. It brings me the most joy
when I can help get my patients back to doing what they love.”
