      I was supposed to learn what I could do about my heart condition and instead I went to a sales talk on why I should have a surgery. He went as far as to look at himself in the mirror behind me and comb his hair with is hand, while I was talking. I felt I was the least important person in the room. I asked him for a refill on my medication that prevents the rapid heart rate and he prescribed me a blood pressure medication without even talking to me about it, how to take it or why to take it.

      I knew a colleague of Dr. John, I was curious about having him take over my cardiac treatment after hearing great things about him. After having a stay in the hospital and this guy I had heard about, being the cardiologist to visit me... I was sold. He spoke to me for ten minutes and I was ready to put my life in his hands for a chance at a recovery I had previously been told was impossible. So far so good, I trust this man with my life and there is light at the end of what was an endless tunnel

      Dr. Benjamin John is "Trustworthy and Brilliant! " When he speaks he's like E.F. Hutton, you listen! Every single doctors and nursing staff I've encountered have only great words to say about him. He embodies a true professional, caring, compassionate, and empathetic character about him and that also applies to his Cardiology Team. I was asked if I was scared to have this procedure done. Actually I looked forward to it as my A-Fib had destroy any semblance of my life! Thank You ALL!
