What People Say About Dr. Issam Al-Bitar, MD
Reply
Dr. Al-Bitar has an excellent bedside manner and is a pleasure to deal with. After my stroke, he explained the 'cardio' part and what tests would be done to find/rule out in a manner to which was easy to understand. He made you feel like you were the only person he had and gave you the attention without you feeling like you were just a number and has to hurry to the next patient. Follow-up visits have been great with the 'positive' attitude of office staff.
