he's been my cardiologist for a while now, and I will stay if you watch Grey's Anatomy he reminds me of Christina Yang not necessarily the friendliest doctor in the world but he's a very good doctor. His bedside manner is not so hot, but I can Overlook that for the simple fact that I know he is doing his very best to take care of my heart not my feelings

Arrogant, rude, never listened, never told me anything, never did anything except to make me feel like i was wasting his time, when I asked if I was, his reply was, “I wasn’t going to say that”

My friend told me about her experience with this doctor. He was extremely rude bordering on hateful. She was disappointed and upset with his attitude and will be seeking another doctor.

This man is my father's cardiologist. He is absolutely the rudest, least compassionate doctor I've EVER met. My first issue came the night he put a pacemaker in my dad. He had a consultation with my mom and me, and he gave us bad news. We had concerns we needed addressed, but in the middle of my mom asking a question he cut her off and said "I've been here since 6:00 am, I'm going to call it a day". He then got up and walked out. Since then, he has continued a trend of rudeness. DO NOT RECOMMEND
