    My experience with Dr. Zidar has been a blessing, he has excellent bedside manners and is very calming. I found him going by recommendations I found online, after meeting him at my first appointment, I knew this was the doctor for me. I told him about my fears and the long family history I have with Heart Disease. He told me "we are going to take this step by step". He sat with me and explained thoroughly what was going to happen during my procedure. He is kind and goes the extra mile.
