This doctor wouldn't even listen to our hearts at many appointments. Then when a family member had a stroke, Dr. Jabbour placed the family member on the wrong medication twice while in the hospital and at home to take. When the family had a near fatal problem in May. Dr. Jabbour again claimed it was not his problem. Once we found a new heart doctor he found endless problems with the family members heart. That Dr. Jabbour missed BIG time. To where the family member could have another heart attack or another stroke.

Dr. Jabbour and his staff are outstanding! He has a very gentle soul and answers all your questions. He has taken care of me and my father, both of us were diagnosed with AFIB with the same year. My dad had the workman's anchor done with much success and I had an ablation done which we are both feeling better everyday. Dr. Jabbour has a heart of gold!! I can remember when I was having my first heart cath done and I was a nervous wreck. When they took me in the machines over heated and we had to wait till they cooled down and Dr. Jabbour came into the room and sat with me holding my hand and talking with me just to keep me calmed down because he knew how nervous I was. GREAT Doctor!!! I will always remember that and will always be grateful!!

My husband underwent what was supposed to be a fairly routine ear surgery when he experienced a very serious cardiac event. Dr. Jabbour was consulted & took over his case & TRULY saved his life. By inserting the new Impella implantable heart pump, he & his team were able to sustain his life until his heart was able to recover. It was a terrifying, yet amazing experience because of this amazing team directed by this amazing doctor.

Dr. Jabbour not only has outstanding medical skills, he is deeply concerned with the welfare of his patient personally. He takes the time to inform, assure and advise, as if he had no other patients who need his attention, making each patient feel secure and special. His manner and dedication are not often found in today's busy medical atmosphere, driven by concerns of the major insurance companies. Bravo.
