After moving here in this small town I was in need of a Heart Doctor. I am very please with Dr Jefferson because it's kinda like going to see an old friend, Dr Jefferson gives you the attention to listen to what you want to say, then answers all your questions and when you leave you feel like you have the information you need.

Dr. Brian Jefferson and his staff are great! I recently had a real concern and Dr. Jefferson's staff setup a time for him to call me on the phone and answer all my questions. I was very worried about my health and Dr. Jefferson made me feel so much better. I love him and his staff for making me feel so much better. I look forward to seeing him in July/2020 for my regular yearly appointment.

I was referred to Dr. Jefferson from another Cardiologist who said with my issues Dr. Jefferson was a more experienced doctor with my issues. He listens to everything you say. He did a follow up arteriogram on me a few years after my heart attack. I trust him and his bedside manner is very professional and caring. Highly recommend.
