Dr. Dwyer is probably the finest Physician I have ever met. I was most fortunate that he was there for my greatest moment of need and saved my life after a near fatal cardiac arrest. He is also one of the most humble and honorable men I have had the pleasure of meeting. He is a genuine human being with masterful skills and possesses the wonderful gift of being able to relate to and effectively communicate with his patients. My life is better as a result of knowing him.

Really liked that he took the time to explain what he was looking for and why, and that he did a thorough physical exam instead of just look at test results. I felt that he was thorough and careful in his exam and follow through.

Dr. Dwyer has been my cardiologist since 2003. During this time he has monitored my heart and installed two stints when cardiac blockages became critical. 10 years later he evaluated and a developing cardiac condition that eventually required open heart surgery. Throughout this process Dr. Dwyer and his staff were involved and maintained very close communication with me and my family throughout my operation and recovery. I have the utmost confidence and respect for Dr. Dwyer.
