From my very first appointment, faced with scary symptoms, through diagnosis and treatment, Dr. El Sabbagh and his staff have been outstanding! He was thorough, compassionate, listened carefully, data-driven, communicated effectively, and ultimately, based on the data, when a pacemaker was required, behaved with the needed sense of urgency, and performed the surgery skillfully. The surgery went seamlessly, and he and his caring staff went above and beyond during the procedure, during recovery, and throughout follow-up, with calls and appointments to ensure I was doing well. Dr. El Sabbagh has earned my full trust and respect, and is without a doubt, an exceptional electrophysiologist. His caring staff, likewise, have earned my trust and respect. Post-op pacemaker checks, office visits...they are friendly, courteous, respectful, and capable. They really DO care, and are so helpful! Grateful that Dr. Sabbagh is my physician!

Dr. El-Sabbagh is a compassionate, professional and very skilled doctor. He educated me on my condition and my need for a Pace Maker. He didn't rush me and answered all my questions with patience and kindness. He is thorough in his exam. He did the surgery to implant the Pace Maker out patient and I'm happy to say I'm doing well. I trust him completely and would highly recommend him to my family and friends.

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.
