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.

Dr. Colombowala was very thorough. He explained was he was thinking about my situation and even asked me for input about medication that was applicable. He did not rush through the appointment. My wife pushed the Happy Face button as we left the building.

Dr. Colombowala is an engaging physician who listened to my concerns and took immediate action. His explanations were direct, to the point,and easy to understand. He performed an ablation procedure to remedy my AFIB 8 weeks ago and to date there has been no sign of AFIB returning. I have total confidence in his skills and would recommend him without any hesitation.

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.
