This is not a doctor to see if you aren't willing to accept WITHOUT QUESTION any and all recommendations he makes. Don't question a procedure, don't ask about side effects of meds, etc. He expects "Yes doctor" to whatever he wants. And be prepared for him to report back to the referring physician that your were "uncooperative." I'd agree that he is probably a qualified cardiologist but unless you are a "Yes doctor" patient, go somewhere else.

I was going to Dr Younis a about couple of years ago and at first I thought he was a great doctor and i love all about him and his office .Then when my Insurance ran out he treated me like I was noting but trash off the street . I have congestive heart failure and no other doctor to go to .What make it so bad is that when I was leaving for the last time rasied his voice to me and treated me like a child .So I have to say that this is not the way a doctor should treated someone .Stay way .

Dr. Younis became my Cardiologist after I had a minor heart attack in the summer of 2015. I really appreciate his calm and friendly bedside manner. He always put me completely at ease during my visit. Fortunately all of my visits with Dr. Younis were routine. Unfortunately I had to select a new Cardiologist in 2016 when my insurance changed to BlueCross BlueShield and Dr. Younis did not accept my insurance plan.
