My ejection fraction was at an extremely low point of 15 when I first went to see Dr. George Bittar 5 yrs.ago. Dr. Bittar gave me all the necessary tests to see why my heart was functioning so poorly, he gave me a prognosis of cardiomyopathy, put me on appropriate medications, & today my heart is back to normal. He has me in for regular checkups, always explains everything to me & never fails to offer to answer any questions or concerns I may have. He is extremely knowledgeable & very kind!!!!!
