I am a 64 year old male with a 20 year history of heart disease. Throughout those years, it's been my privilege to have Dr. Zidar as my cardiologist. To characterize him as anything less than outstanding would be a disservice. Dr. Zidar connects in a manner I have yet to encounter with any other physician. He actively listens and, as a result, I never feel that I am competing with the clock. He answers my questions specifically, without resorting to generic replies. He is in a class of one.

Dr. Zidar is a compassionate human being, who made me feel comfortable in his presence. He listened carefully to my complaints, answering my questions in a satisfying manner. We discussed the pros and cons of various medications, and I never felt that he was prescribing one medication over another without a proper explanation. I am lucky to have Dr. James Zidar as my cardiologist. Glad my heart is in his hands! I recommend this highly qualified physician to anyone with a heart problem.

Very intelligent. One of the best in his field, nationally. As a bonus, he is very congenial.
