Very nice, friendly. He addresses all of my health concerns. He is very thorough. He does EKG and blood work annually. He offers stress testing, but leaves the decision to me. I have been in his care over 13 years, and would recommend him to everyone.

Dismissed my concerns. Hardly reviewed my records. Was not even aware I had an abnormal ekg at the hospital. His nurse was very ill and should not have been around elderly and heart patients. Walked out with no answers for my severe symptoms.
