    Dr. Farhat was a Godsend to my dad in 2017/2018. When his other cardiologist and heart surgeon (double bypass) in another town indicated they could not do any more for my dad, we switched him to Dr. Farhat. He changed several of dad's meds, placed 2 stents & a defib/pacemaker. It was miraculous to watch because my dad was so very sick and feeble. Dad went on to have a good year in 2018...a 20gr18! He was able to regroup a bit and felt confident; unfortunately, he was diagnosed with cancer in 2019, which took his life. Dr. Farhat gave him hope, which is priceless. I am also Dr. Farhat's patient, as is my mother, mother-in-law, and my godfather. Lastly, at church last weekend, a gentleman was sharing that his previous cardiologist messed up, "But now I have an incredible cardiologist." And, whataya know, his new cardiologist is Dr. Farhat! Skilled, compassionate, intelligent....ASSEM is AWESOME!
