Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Sontz ""I think the most satisfying aspect of my medical practice is my interaction with patients.I operate off of the 'Golden Rule' and try to empathize with people," states Dr. Sontz."More often than not, there is a lot more going on in patients' lives than their heartissues. Getting to know patients and figuring out their deleterious stresses along with adverse patterns in diet and exercise are important to getting them better. It is very rewarding to be able to help someone get healthier.""

Patient Comments (1)
in Desert Hot Springs, CA |
In Feb 2016 I went to the ER with chest pains. It turned out I needed a couple of stents and Dr Sontz was the cardiologist who did the surgery. It was all done so expertly that I just assumed that is the way those things are done. But It has been in the follow up that I've come to appreciate his ongoing care. He listens and explains things in ways I can understand. When I was a little careless in doing my own daily blood pressure tests, his encouragement got me back on track.
