Dr Hostig has been my cardiologist for many years. I have been treated very well and Dr Hostig has always had my health and best interest in mind when he cares for me. His staff is one of the best, and his office is very comfortable. All these items are very important to a patient. I highly recommend him for your cardiac needs.

Very thorough and knowledgeable. He intervened on my behalf prior to scheduled surgery and found abnormalities in nuclear stress test. He advised me to obtain an angiogram ASAP. Very confident having a cardiologist of this high level.

Dr Hostig is very compassionate and understands the needs of his patients. We have been a patient of his for 20 years and especially like his assistant(s)Sue and Vidia. They always greet you with a smile and welcomes you into the office.

Given the circumstances of my husband's condition, we found Dr. Hostig to be extremely attentive to detail and exhibits sincere concern for his patients and their families. The staff was equally accommodating. We are very pleased at our selection of Dr. Hostig to handle some very delicate situations.

Dr Hostig is kind and compassionate. Additionally, he listens to his patients without rushing them and is armed with vast knowledge and experience. My aging parents have been long time patients and now I am also under his care. Not many doctors cater to elderly and middle-age patients with such finesse.

DR. HOSTIG IS TERRIFIC! HE IS THE BEST DIAGNOSTICIAN THERE IS! He found that my husband had a leaky valve he had been walking around with for a long time. Without Dr. Hostigs expertise and rapid response I am not sure that my husband would be around today! He is a very compassionate and thorough doctor who will take his time answering any questions. I would not hesitate recommending Dr. Hostig as you will not find anyone as kind, compassionate and intelligent as he is!

Dr. Hostig is a very caring doctor. I would definitely recommend him. However, when you call the office you are put on hold for long periods of time. I need to schedule a stress test and haven't been able to get through. When calling from work it's hard to be on hold for more than 15 minutes before even talking to someone. I liked everything else at the office.
