My wife and I were extremely impressed with the entire staff starting with Brittney, then Stephanie who is extremely knowledgeable and so easy to converse with and then finally Dr Colombowala who is a real people person. Right from the start he understood my feelings and listened with a open mind. He explained all the benefits that would address my situation in a language I totally understood. We would highly recommend Dr. Colombowala to anyone needing his cardiac specialization . Tom and Joan Morrow

My husband has seen him for over a year now and is very happy with him. If he is, I am! We have a minor surgery coming up for replacing the battery in his Pacemaker, and he's not worried at all about the procedure. I think this says a lot about the doctor.

I would highly recommend Dr. Colombowala who put in my pacemaker a couple of weeks ago. I hadn't realized that my heart situation was to the critical point and when he saw the results of my heart monitor and EKG he wanted to make sure a pacemaker immediately. I'm pretty sure if it wasn't for him I would not be here today to comment on his expertise. He really cares about his patients as he proved in my case.
