Patient Reviews (1)
in Carlsbad, CA |
Dr. Backman is a doctor's doctor. I am a retired MD who went for a full cardiac work up because of my hypertension and atrial fibrillation. First of all he is very personable but more importantly experienced and competent. He diagnosed me accurately, got all the appropriate testing and then gave me excellent treatment and advice. It made me feel that he was involved with my overall health. His calm manner and reassurance made me feel I was with the best cardiologist. I recommend him highly.
