I saw Dr. Nester for AFib. He is a very friendly person. He is also very thorough and a very knowledgeable practitioner. I felt very comfortable with his diagnosis and treatment plan. He spent a lot of time answering all of my questions. I would highly recommend Dr. Nester to any patient seeking cardiac care.
