I have had two cardiologist in my life. Dr Love and another Dr from another town. I originally went to Dr Love where he helped me an on going problem I had for a far as I could remember but nobody diagnosed me properly until Dr Love. I had a pretty good size hole in my heart. He sketched a pic of a heart explaining the proper function and what my issue was creating. Such a genuine human and professional. Takes the time to ease fears and explain in a way that I could understand. I left because I moved almost an hour away. After my new cardiologist started to work with me because of another issue I had, she was abrupt, rude and even raised her voice at me when answering a question. I dropped her and now drive almost an hour to Dr Love. He will be installing a pacemaker for me. I have complete confidence in him.

Dr Love is a wonderful doctor. He's always educating, and gives details explanations of your condition. He treats you like a real person and listens carefully. I really trust his opinions. I came to Dr. Love after an unsatisfactory experience with another cardiologist who I didn't enjoy. Dr. Love was highly recommended, and I've been very pleased with him. AND my heart is much healthier!
