Patient Reviews (1)
in Miami, FL |
Met him at a hospital when he visited my room and gave me his card. Seems knowledgeable but has trouble keeping appts. Orders every test under the sun if you let him. Had me retake a $1500 test because the technician made an error but made no effort to reimburse me for the botched test. Thinks patients are made of money. Only works Tuesdays and Thursdays but don't bother making morning appts because he will be late. I got tired of the abuse and switched to another electrophysiologist.
