Patient Comments (2)
in Chevy Chase, MD |
He has been my cardiologist for over a decade; he performed my angioplasty and stents after a heart attack, and also implanted a pacemaker/defibrillator. I have stayed on medications and have had no subsequent cardiac issues. His bedside manner and personality if always five stars; always gives me ample time and attention. Simply the best.
Denver, CO |
Takes his complete time with you, no rush it feels. Really explains everything in easy to understand terminology. Obviously knows his stuff, very smart. Actually caring and not arrogant. You really get a sense that he loves and has a passion for cardiovascular systems and fixing things. I just really have a very hard time thinking of any cons. He honestly exhibits what all healthcare personnel in the USA should, but most do not. He cares.
