I have to be honest! It was divine intervention to see Dr. Paulus. I had a heartattack. The usual doctor for the ER wasn't there and Dr. Paulus was on duty. Dr. Paulus came in told us what was going on and fixed the problem. Dr. Paulus spoke with my young ( 9) and ( 10) year old children reassuring them that Mom is going to be just fine. It's been 5 years and the children are great and Mom well Mom is doing just fine. I would recommend Dr, Paulus to anyone with heart disease

Dr Paulus is the best doctor I have ever had and I recommend him to everyone that needs a heart d!octor. He is very kind, understanding, listens to me about my medical conditions. Takes time with me then I come for office visits and I am able to get advice when I need it by a phone call. Thanks Dr Paulus for all you do. You are the best
