Review for Dr. Liu

She’s friendly, knowledgeable and compassionate. A lot of cardiologists aren’t very approachable, but she makes your concerns feel like the most important ones right then. She also keeps up on the latest issues and treatment.

Review for Dr. Babare

Knowledgeable, personable and takes as much time as needed. Wait times can be long, but she’ll spend as much time on your visit as needed to take care of everything.

Dr. Fealk is one of the best doctors I have been to. I've been seeing him every three months for 4 years. He diagnosed my cancer and helped save my life. He is always very kind and listens to what I say. Always tells me to call if I have any problems.
