Echoing the other reviews here - Dr. Rosenbaum was rude, abrupt, condescending, unhelpful, and made me uncomfortable. When I tired to express concerns, he shrugged and said, "Then find someone else." I left without answers to my problem. Absolutely would not recommend.

Dr. Welch explained - as I understood him - that I would most likely need to increase my dosage level of my medication soon, pending the results of my blood work. I wished he had explained more what he described as the "iterations" of cardiologic care and practice in this regard.
