Dr. Hicks is an amazing doctor and I highly recommend him. I have been an R.N. for over 40 years with a specialty in cardiac critical care. He is the best cardiologist I have ever known and also one of the best diagnosticians I have ever dealt with. I did not work with him, but I was his patient and am so glad I found him. He truly saved my life twice. If not for him, I would probably not be alive. He takes the time to listen to what you have to say and really hear you! He is a true gem!

Dr. Hicks literally saved my life! If it wasn't for his vast knowledge and caring I probably wouldn't be here today. Dr. Hicks knew what my problem was from the moment we discussed my symptoms. All was confirmed with tests and he made the best recommendations for me. I just can't say enough about Dr. Hicks and his staff! They are not only knowledge and professional, they truly care about their patients!!
