Dr. Lichtenwalter was and is incredibly skillful at explaining and performing all of my procedures. I am convinced he saved my life. I would recommend him to anyone with heart disease. You could not be in better hands.

He is so kind. After heart cath and his diagnosis, I have been so good. No ER or hospital visits! Thanks so much Dr Lichtenwalter!
in Chandler, Az |
Came in to get test results. Hardly any mention of 5 hours of testing done at your facilities. Appointment ended with I should see his partner who does ablation. I asked was my problem what he had assumed it was on my first visit, he had no idea what he had told me then, he had no chart, no laptop, I think he was winging it. I was the last patient on Friday morning. I still have no idea what my tests said.
