The only way to put it is that he saved my life! After a year of going back and forth with Drs I had my first appointment with him. He promised he would find out the problem and he did. He talked to me and my family through each step. We adjusted med, ran tests, and monitored the situation. He did an oblation and when I was still experienceing issues he put in a pacemaker. I feel great. I would highly recommend him. He not only knows his stuff but he truly cares about his patients.

Great doctor, posting this the day after cardiac ablation at Beebe. Procedure went very well, has awesome bedside manners, explains EVERYTHING in easy to understand language, addresses other side effects from procedure, excellent follow-up and discharge instructions. Staff at Beebe was great, he and his team are highly recommended. Thanks Dr El Sabbagh.

Very impressed with dr. El Sabbagh. He explained in detail my condition and offered choices for treatment. Very compassionate man who treats you as an equal. I came from another state with a very large practice of cardiologists. A few of them could learn from dr E!! Would highly recommend him. Thank you.

I am usually a very nervous patient. Dr El Sabbagh immediately made me feel comfortable. He answered all of my questions, and explained what I needed to know about my condition in such a way that my fears were put to rest. Dr El Sabbagh really listened to me.

His staff was great about notifying me about a cancellation so I could see him sooner. He did a great job explaining a complex heart procedure in terms I could understand. very patient with all my questions. He laid out a course of treatment that was reasonable and not overly aggressive.

My experience with Dr. El Sabbaugh has been hands down one of the BEST medical encounters I have ever had. He was very thorough when explaining the ablasion procedure, what I could expect pre and post procedure.I had some "angst" concerning such an invasive heart procedure but the more people I spoke to, when they heard Dr El Sabbagh was performing it stated that he was "the best'". His experience at the Cleveland clinic was also assuring. He returns phone calls promptly,very reassuring....

Dr. El Sabbagh seemed to be very concerned about my health .... more concerned than i was. at first i was hesitant to take his advice when he prescribed medicines for me to take but after really listening to him, i realized that he was right. i am very thankful for his persistence. everything he has done for me changed my life. i am not one who likes to take pills but his reassurance that i am not the only one really put me at ease and for that i am grateful that he is mt doctor.
