Fred is the worst physician I have ever seen, including any cardiologists. He does not listen to patients. My husband would be dead if we had stayed with him. Instead, our GP referred us to another cardiologist who performed life saving surgery. Fred totally missed the mark on what my husband needed and would have died under his care.
