Dr. Cross treated my dad 4 years ago when he was admitted with unknown heart disease. He is an amazing physician that has a profound knowledge of all things heart related. However the most incredible attribute of Dr. Cross is his own heart to care for those around him, his patients as well as his employees.

First appt with Dr. Cross was perfect. After several tests incl. a Holter, I needed a pacemaker. Dr. Cross insisted that my rapid pulse on the Holter also required a Beta blocker & bloodthinner and would not consider my claim that it was due to exercise. My cousin, a Temple OB/Gyn, referred me to his Cardiologist, who implanted a Pacemaker 3 days later and said we'd let the Pacemaker decide re further meds. So far NO; everything is PERFECT. Disappointed that Dr. Cross is unwilling to liste
