An exceptional doctor, caring and an expert in his field. He has treated me for over 30 years. He helped me with my heart problems when others could not.

Told his office I wanted an appointment to discuss ablation for afib. He spent half an hour telling about afib and then told me he didn't do ablation anymore. Then he tried to sell me on a pace maker.
