Dr Talesnick is a fantastic Cardiologist, that made me feel like my health and wellbeing was his top priority! His staff was helpful, & extremely courteous, and made it easy to schedule an appointment. The waiting area was clean, with plenty of seats and magazines. For those of you driving, parking in the area wasn't as bad as I expected, (street parking and garage parking was pretty much all over the place). I highly recommend that you visit Dr Talesnick. (You'll thank me later).
